Thursday, 8/28/14- 1st Day of School

Welcome!

In this classroom, we have a “growth mind-set.”  Your achievement as a student is something that can be changed through your hard work, effort, and experience in this class.  Success comes because of effort, and you control the amount of effort that you put forth.  No past success in Science?  It does not mean that you will not succeed in Science this year.  In this classroom, we are determined to improve and learn!!

The emphasis in our classroom is placed on learning and meeting our learning goals and objectives.  Here is where you will find the learning objective that we are working on in class and the learning activities or assignments that will guide you in achieving that objective.

I look forward to working together throughout the school year!

Homework:
