Welcome to the Wonderful World of Science!!!!Ms. Bellerand8th GradeTeam DefendersRoom 243
I am looking forward to a very successful year with your child.I am a true believer in a cooperative partnership approach to education.My philosophy is that, "It takes a village to educate a child".TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK!!!!So let's work together to make this year GREAT!!!I have an open door policy, any questions or concerns do not hesitate to email me.
During this 8th grade science year your child will cover a number of topics; Energy Resources, Hydrosphere, Ecology, Infectious Diseases/Microbes, Biotechnology, Matter/Chemistry, and Geological Time/Evolution. This is an EOG tested course. So keeping up with the all the notes and resources given throughout the year is crucial for your child’s achievement, since the test is cumulative.
This class relies heavily on Google classroom, science interactive notebook, and a number of digital resources. Parents will receive an invitation to join my Google classroom via email. This will allow you to set up weekly alerts so you can track your child's progress, view assignments and due dates, and have access to instructional resources.
