End of Trimester 1!

Hi all!
We are approaching the end of trimester 1!
Please remind students that Thursday (December 1st) is their last day to submit missing work or to complete retakes on summative assessments.
Also a reminder that there is no school for students on Friday due to the end of the trimester.

Topic 2 Test tomorrow! (10/14)

A reminder that we have our second test tomorrow in science. It will be on all of Topic 2: Physical Science. Please remind your student to have their notes prepared for class and to have completed their study guide for review!

Week 6 Update 10/10

This week we will be wrapping up our Topic 2 unit on Physical Science. Students should be making sure that their assignments for the topic are completed so that they are well prepared for our upcoming summative assessments. This topic will consist of a two-part summative assessment including both a test and a lab component.
Please encourage your student to make sure their vocabulary notes are up to date and that they have completed any missing assignments to help them be able to do their best on their summative assessments.

Science Test Thursday! (9/22)

Today (9/21) students will be preparing for their first test on Topic 1 (The Practice of Science). Students are using an online study guide that can give instant feedback as they study for their test. They MAY use their notebooks for the test, so please help remind them that they should double check their notes to be sure they are completed with all of our vocabulary thus far.
If students were absent and missed a day, they can find the slides from class in the designated weekly Schoology folder.

Welcome Back! (9/15)

We have been rocking and rolling in science and are coming upon our first summative assessment. This week, we will be flying paper airplanes as we develop experiments. Next week, we will have our first test on Topic 1. Study Guides will be in the form of Google Forms so that students can practice and get immediate feedback. They will be allowed to use only their notebooks on the assessment. So please help remind them to get their notebooks up to date!
One other reminder that tomorrow (9/16) will be a free dress day with the Dress-Up day as Minnesota Sports Day!
