Results of the first quiz was overall very good except for students in my first and 4th periods. The main reason for the lower grades in these classes was that a high percentage of students did not have their "Super Scientist" worksheet, which could have been used for the quiz. Nonetheless, their were a lot of positives overall that we can build on in the coming weeks.
We will starting Discovery Education this week. Parents, you can access your child's account with their login and password. You can see their assignments and results of most quizzes (although not the last one). If they do not finish their work in class they can do so at home.
First week is school is over and it went very smoothly. Looks like a really good group of students this year and I know with the help of parents and guardians this will be a very successful year!.
First quiz for both 7th and 8th grade will be this coming Friday, 24 Aug (see the 7th and 8th grade page for more information). There are important study guides on the same page that I have put links with the answers.
Lastly, in order for students to do experiments and activities in our science lab they must have a "Lab Contract" turned in signed by both parent/guardian and student. They will be given the paper on Monday to bring home, if you do not receive it there is a blue link below that you can print out a copy. Experiments are age appropriate for middle school students. I will be the only one handling any "potentially" dangerous chemicals , and then they will only be used as demonstrations.
