Today, students worked on getting their partner/Solo form and wish list completed and turned into me for approval. This is to be done in our google classroom.

I am asking all parents to check tonight to see if this has been done and to ensure you know what topic your child has chosen and also their partner, if applicable. Any questions or concerns please email me right away! Projects can be a stressful time of year, so starting off which success is key!

Next, students will start on their proposal (aka rough draft - also posted in our google classroom). I will give 2 or 3 more classes to work on this, then the rest will need to be completed at home.

Welcome! Great first class! Today I discussed expectations, materials, and policies with the students.

On Monday, we will start on lab safety.

Students need to bring 1 yellow duo- tang for Unit 1 - keep the rest home for now. : )

Students are reminded to bring their text book and pencil to each science class, as well as their yellow duo-tang.

Today we started to discuss science projects. All information can be found in our google classroom.

In our next class, students are asked to choice a partner (if they wish) and a topic. Both must be approved by me.

Please, please, please have a chat with your child regarding partners. If there are any issues please let me know.

All students will fill our a partner form (or SOLO) and a wish list for my approval (via google classroom). Parents should be aware of partner choices and topics prior to starting the proposal/project.
