Science With Mr. Harvey
Ninth Edition, 2014-2015
First Nine Weeks Down!
I owe all of you a BIG THANK YOU for what you do to support your children's education. I have spoken with some, emailed back and forth with others, and I just really appreciate your support and understanding in each situation. It means a lot to me. I know how hard it is to balance your work/life schedule with that of your own children as well. Being a parent is the toughest job out there, and you have all done it well so far. I see the results of your hard work every day. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help your child meet their full potential in our classroom.

Science Fair 2014-15
There is a website for the FCMS Science Fair: http://www.fcmsbobcatssciencefair.com/
On that website you will find basic science fair information, necessary forms to fill out, and a timeline with due dates.
This week (by Friday), the students are to turn in the draft of their annotated bibliography. Last month our librarian, Mrs. Jacobs, spoke with my 6th and 7th periods about what an annotated bibliography includes. She showed them a website, www.easybib.com, that will create a bibliography entry for any type of resource. They should know how to create one. Finding the resources will be their main task this week.
All due dates will be taken for grades. If the task is completed, they will get a 100. If it is not turned in, it will be recorded as a 50. Normal late work policies apply. The finished project will be taken as a major grade, and will be reflected on the 3rd nine weeks report card.
