Science 8 Newsletter
Hicksville Middle School
Welcome to Room 237!
I hope this email finds you well and excited for the new year! In this email you will find major topics of study and assignments for the upcoming week. I have listed a date to be assigned and/or due date for each, but please note these may change due to school events or need for further review.
Snow Season: The month of January is often interrupted by snow days and delays, as such, it is important that your student check their email frequently for assignment updates and bring their science notebook home each night. Practice assignments for the upcoming Spring Science OAA will begin to be assigned this month, with these often used to supplement the content following a snow day.
As we return from break and enter this snowy season, please encourage your student to develop a plan for using this daily homework time wisely and avoiding easy distractions. Thanks so much for your support with homework completion.
Grades for this week?
