Hicksville Middle School

Welcome to Room 237!

I hope this email finds you well and preparing for the busy holiday season! In this email you will find major topics of study and assignments for the upcoming weeks. 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.

Grades for this week?

Science 7 students will be earning grades on the following assignments for the week:

  1. Fruitvale Contamination Mystery Town Hall Meeting: This week marks the conclusion of the Fruitvale Contamination Mystery Unit. On Tuesday (11/17), students will be assigned a role to play during the town hall meeting. With this role in mind, students will select a clean-up option to support and present during the meeting. On Thursday (11/19), the town hall meeting will be held and students will present their selected clean-up plans. Students will be expected to act out their role, including dressing appropriately for the part.
  2. Fruitvale Contamination Mystery Written Response: On Friday (11/20), students will develop a written response focusing on what they learned about the movement of water and contamination throughout an environment.

Test Grade: Student participation in the town hall meeting and their written responses will be combined for a unit test grade. This will be the first test grade of the quarter.
