Grade 8, please come to class prepared everyday with your Earth Science binders, reference tables and any work that is due.
Attention: In order to keep the students organized, on task, and not falling behind throughout this regents level course, especially with their labs,students are required to hand in their assignments promptly. The students grades are subject to change if assignments are tardy.
I post all the notes, homework's, and labs on the calendar for the entire month. The objective of having all this material on line is allowing this information to be readily available to you. It gives a chance for your family to be actively involved and able to see what exactly is going on, on a day-to-day basis.
*Students are responsible for printing and coming to class prepared with all of the notes, worksheets, and labs that are on the calendar*.
The printouts under certain calendar days can be subject to change depending on each class. It is encouraged to print out the materials on a month by month basis to avoid having to print multiple times that month. The notes coincide with the power point presentations that are conducted in class, to help keep the students on track with this regents level course. Our main goal is to present this curriculum in an organized and proficient manner.
I sometimes will post review packets, other helpful links or information under the resource bar, so please feel free to continuously check to see what is new.
