12th Week of School

There is a good chance that I will not be at school Monday (I have jury duty).

The geography test was today and the retakes are scheduled for Tuesday (21st) at 7:15 AM; there will be no other opportunity.

Please use the Power Point to study.

No School next Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday.  Thanksgiving break!

11th Week of School

It was so nice meeting so many of you tonight and last night.  I think it all went well.

9th Week of School Continued

The 1st quarter ends today.

We had our science test on Chapter 6 yesterday and I will have all of those checked, recorded and posted by tomorrow morning.  Since the quarter ended today and grades are due for teachers on Tuesday I am offering retakes (anything below a C+) this Monday (Nov. 6th) at either 7:00 AM or at 3:05 PM in my classroom.  Therefore, students need to look on the student connect this weekend to decide if they are going to take advantage of that opportunity or not.

Chapter 5 Energy Sections 1, 2 & 3 & 6 Heat Lesson Sections 1, 2 & 3

It is ONLY on Chapter 6 (not chapter 5).

Thank you… have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing many of you for Parent/Teacher Conferences November 13th & 14th.

9th Week of School

HaPPy HaLLoWeeN!

The Chapter 6 Science Study Guide is due tomorrow.  It was assigned last week on Friday and time was given on it during class.  We will be reviewing tomorrow in class.

The Unit Test is Thursday.

Final typed revisions form the C.E.R. on “Climate Change in the Mid-West” from the NEWSELA article is due Friday.

The 1st Quarter ends this Friday.  Please be sure to get anything missing to me by then for at least half-credit.

Parent/Teacher Conferences in two weeks.

8th Week of School

The 1st quarter is fast coming to an end (November 3rd) and parent/teacher conferences will soon be there after.  I hope students and parents are constantly checking grades and e-mailing teachers whenever there is an issue.  Do not wait till the last minute.  I did send out Progress Reports last week for any student with a C- or below and asked that those get signed and returned.

I am going to try to have a science test next week on Thursday for Chapter 6 “Heat & Heat Technology”.

The PBIS Cider & Donuts is this Friday at 7:30 AM this Friday.  You will need three Eagle Etiquette tickets to attend.

Halloween is next Tuesday!

7th Week of School

I was not in school today.

There is a LATE start this Wednesday.

We had our first geography test last week on iLearn.  They and many other assignments have been posted on the portal recently as of today.  Please check that on a regular basis.  I am going through grades and I have more lower grades then I would like too.

I am attaching the Geography Power Point for Chapter 2 “The World in Spatial Terms”.  I don’t believe we will have another test before the end of the quarter in geography, but I am planning on having one in science (probably November 2nd)

6th Week of School

We looked over our science tests today (they are recorded on the portal) however, I would like to hold on to them until Parent/Teacher Conferences in November.  Retakes are either Thursday at 7:20-7:50 AM or after school at 3:05-3:35 PM.  Also, tomorrow is our big review for our first geography test on Chapter 1.  The study guide is due as well it was given Friday and we will go over it, then review for the test which is this Thursday.  This test will be taken on iLearn with the chrome books.

I will be out the second half of the day on Wednesday for a professional development for science.  I also will NOT be a school on the 16th.

There is a half-day this Friday.

5th Week of School

We are already half-way in the 1st quarter… Wow!  Halloween will be here before you know it.  I hope everyone is keeping up on checking this blog at least twice a week and checking on their grades.  I sent out a text message yesterday, but just in case we are having our first science test this Thursday.  I gave out a study guide yesterday that is due Tuesday.  Tuesday will also be the review (so don’t be absent).   Here is an updated Power Point for Chapter 5 (study only the first part sections 1, 2 & 3, NOT Chapter 6).  Always any questions or concerns e-mail me.  Have a great weekend!
