Third Quarter

We have completed half of the year! We are starting with Photosynthesis/Cellular Respiration now and then we will spend the rest of the quarter on Body Systems! Our frog dissection unit will be the week before Spring Break, they are looking forward to it and so am I!

As a reminder, everything that they need to do for science is shown in Google Classroom, even if it is a paper based assignment. All items that go in Skyward have an entry on their calendar, so it is easy to see what is expected. Your student should be able to show you their work electronically or potentially in their folder if it was a paper based assignment.

 

Please encourage your student to start off this quarter strong, we really want to avoid a slump. Often after Winter Break they thing that school is 'over' - which is not the case :) Also, please check to be sure that earbuds/headphones and other school supplies are readily available, if you need assistance with this, please let me know.
