My Website
  • Things you can find out
  • Homework and assignment due dates on the Calendar
    and under the assignments link
  • Tests and Quizzes- On the calendar
  • Notes and Important Assignment documents posted
    under Class Documents
  • Information for parents
  • Includes a link to Parent Assistant
  • Information on what is being covered and upcoming
  • Coming soon-Links to Websites for more
    information on the topic we are covering

  • This year we are using Edmodo to do online
    discussions of articles we read.
  • First article will be assigned this week
  • Why?
  • It is more user friendly than having an article
    discussion on the school system website.
  • It is more secure than having it set up as a
    group in Facebook.
  • Parents can have access with a parent code that
    will allow them to view what we are discussing
    and what their child is saying.

Science Fair
  • Students will be expected to participate in the
    Science Fair this year as a part of STEM night.
  • More information will be given out in class and
    posted online as soon as due dates have been
