[ PARENT CONFERENCES]
– IMPORTANT 10/5
I apologize for any inconveniences but I will not be at school on November 1st for parent conferences. If anyone would like to meet, please email to schedule a conference. I am available before school and 7:40 on Mondays-Thursdays.
Thanks in advance.
UPDATE: Mrs Russo has decided the Science Fair will not be mandatory for middle school students this year.
However, many students had unique idea and we would like to see Haynes Academy represented at the district and state science fairs. Students who participate voluntarily in the Science Fair, will be able to use the credit in place of the lowest major assessment in the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th quarter.
If you have any questions please email.
TOPICS ARE DUE on THURSDAY 10/9. All students received an introduction to science fair on 10/5 with a list of due dates.
ALL SCIENCE FAIR ASSIGNMENTS NEED TO BE TYPED.
LATE ASSIGNMENTS WILL LOSE 5 point each day late.
PLEASE DO NOT PROCRASTINATE.
Student have been instructed to come during advisory/tutoring for questions and support.
Is my Science Fair topic acceptable? Please see the above first. Can you design a project to test your idea?
TEXTBOOK : If you have a question about the textbook, chances are someone else does too Please email all questions and I will try to address to help everyone.
1. Link to access the online textbook:
2. The students username is their ID number and passwords have been issued.
3. The textbook is for grade 6-8th. Since all middle school science courses are integrated, the textbook is divided into modules. I will make sure to post the module currently used for each grade.
For example : 7th is currently Ecology and the Environment and 6th is Space Science
4. The student textbook is interactive and is a fabulous resource to use.
However, if you are trying to locate an assignment, the print student edition (found in the resource section – scroll down below the Unit books) will contain page numbers and numbers for questions.
5. I think once in the textbook, the greatest tool is the drop down menu in the top left hand corner.
I appreciate everyone’s patience. Student’s were advised last weekend to take time to get to know the online textbook. Please make sure, you are navigating the textbook this weekend and the resource section. To move forward in the curriculum is to make sure everyone has access and feels comfortable.
STUDENTS WISHING TO EMAIL MUST FOLLOW THE TERMS OF ACT 837 and send the EMAIL to email@example.com
