The 7th Grade students will start with a quick study of Minerals and Rocks and then move on to Physical Science.
A change this quarter is that if the students would like to improve a test score they have TWO options. If the student writes out the question missed along with the correct answer, they will receive a score of 80 for the test. If the student wishes to improve their grade further, the student needs to write the questions and answers and then come in after school and re-take the test. The best score a student may receive is a 90. The student must present the re-write and make arrangements to come in after school. No other time is available for a re-take.
The 8th Grade students will do a short (2 week) course in Chemistry to finish up what was started first semester. The students will be looking at the types of chemical reactions and balancing equations. The notes will be available soon.
