Farewell to 7th or 8th grade Science!Mrs. SzmurigaRichard **Room 107**(336) 538-6010
Wow it is the END of the YEAR, wahoo! Not time to celebrate yet though. Most of you have put in lots of hard work this year to maintain grades that each of you is capable of achieving. We have completed some labs and activities in class to assist you in remembering concepts, and now it is time to try a little more. I have put study tools and aids here and also in google classroom- these are open to all 7th and 8th grade students. Both grades have resources that can be utilized through Study Island (located in Clever- on the WAMS main page). Other resources are Quizizz and Quizlet. Brain pop is another resources we used in class all year and should be accessible to each of you.7th grade: Your NCFE is online this year and it will have 40 questions and the link to the released form with answers is: http://www.ncpublicschools.org/docs/accountability/testing/common-exams/released-items/middleschoolitems/2018/g7scirel18.pdf. Remember to use the test taking skills you learned in class. Please look in the announcements for study links.

Some things you all should know about class, 7th or 8th grade:
Grades, Percentages and Categories:
The online grade book is updated at least every three weeks. Classwork which consists of notebook and labs count 35%, projects count 20%, quizzes count 30%, and homework which consists of vocabulary and weekly homework counts 15% towards the final grade. It is very easy to pass my class with an “A” as long as assignments are quality and turned in on time. Quizzes will be given every Friday and are based on that week’s learning, with a few “throwback” questions as well. Making time to study will be important!
My homework policy is simple; homework is due on the assigned date and I will not accept late work. I understand that there can be extenuating circumstances once in a while and I will take these into consideration as the situation arises. All homework and vocabulary for the week is assigned on Monday, and due by Friday. Notebooks will be checked and graded and once a week. Weekly homework assignments for 7th and 8th grade can be located on my webpage.
I also assign several labor-intensive projects throughout the year because I feel that these provide a more complete learning experience. Please note that no project will be assigned without written instructions! Instructions to all projects when assigned can be located in the files section of this web page.
