8th Grade Comprehensive Science
Current Events and Homework
There are no current calendar items.
Please read the syllabus thoroughly. I have uploaded it for two reasons: first and foremost, saving trees; second, convenience. Students have in the past lost their syllabus and have asked me for a replacement. So for convenience I have decided to upload it, thus making it available to them, at their finger tip.
Please make sure that you have the materials with you every time you come to class. Preparedness is very important and having your materials is crucial to being successful in getting the grade you desire. You will receive a grade of A or F for preparedness, every time you come to class. Finally, please sign and return (student/parent) pages 5 & 6 of the syllabus.
