              Welcome to Cyndi Hursh's Science  8 class!

 

 In the Science 8 lab, we will work to generate and use data, access outdoor classrooms and begin to see our place as citizens of the world.

 This 8th grade general science class involves a variety of lab work & activities throughout each of our major units of study - Chemistry, Meteorology and Oceanography.

Absences:  If a student is absent, it will be their responsibility to collect assignments from the "Absent Work" bin and to pass in missing work on the day of their return.  Make-ups for tests, quizzes, labs, etc. are done during extra help or by appointment.

 Please check your student's assignment notebooks, encourage them to do quality work and help them strive to become independent learners!  Binders are kept and organization emphasized.   Thanks to all family members for their support of your young scientist.
