8TH GRADERS!!!!

Due to the play, you’ll have rehearsals all week.  I will make sure that you get the work.  I will expect all homework handed out this week to be turned in NEXT WEEK when your block meets.  Let me know if you a question about this.

**************************************************************************************************

GEOLOGY TESTS will be returned early this week.  If the word “RETAKE” is written on your test, you must come to the Science room next Wednesday at Lunch to retake the test.  If you do not show up, your score will remain unchanged.  You may not come if “retake” is NOT written on your test.

Here’s the deal with the retake:  Five questions from your original test will be selected.  It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to correct your test to study for the retake.  This will not be an open-note test.

Geology Study guide

Yes, the evil teacher has scheduled a Geology test for the week AFTER the Science fair.  To be slightly kinder, I’m making it an open-note test.  Each student has received a 5″ by 8″ index card which they can write notes on and bring to the test.  I did warn everybody that they should not fore go studying because of the open-note format.

Next week there will be Block time on Monday and Tuesday set aside to work on the study guide.
