All of the 8th grade teachers met and decided to have one syllabus for the 8th grade team. This means that in our classrooms, we have the same expectations for our students. We will be reviewing this the first week of school, and students will be expected to keep it in their INS for the school year. A copy of the syllabus is attached for you to look at.
