There will be weekly assessments, labs, in class projects and Quarterly Benchmark Assessments. If anyone needs additional help please be sure to let me know! I will be glad to help in anyway! I hope everyone has a successful school year!
Parent Conferences have been scheduled for October 22nd between the hours of 10-6pm. For the 8th grade Blue Team, we will operate a floating schedule. You may show up at the school to meet with any of your child's teachers during this time frame. If you need to schedule a meeting with one of your child's teachers, please contact them to set up a specific time. Your child's Homeroom teacher will have report cards to give out the day of the parent conference. One side note in regards to meeting with any of us at school, I have a coaches meeting at 12-1:30 on the 22nd. I will be unavailable during that time period.
Please contact me if you have any questions!
