James Bowie Middle School
Chemical Equations Test on Friday
Hello Bowie Bears,
We will be finishing up the Chemistry Unit this week. The students have worked hard but I have not been fully satisified with their scores. Since Chemistry is a major portion of the 8th Grade STAAR test, I am giving one last assessment this Friday, January 17th. I want to make sure that our scientists fully understand this before moving on to Characteristics of the Universe. The 8th Grade Science STAAR test is scheduled for Wednesday, April 23rd.
New Interactive Notebooks Starting This Week
We have essentially filled out Fall Semester Interactive Notebooks (IAN's). When school supplies were passed out at the beginning of the Fall Semester, Even if we /have a few pages left, we will start using our new Interactive Notebook starting next week. Please make sure that you have a new, 1 subject spiral notebook by next Wednesday, Jan. 15th.
** DO NOT THROW AWAY YOUR FALL SEMESTER IAN's!! THEY WILL BE USED FOR THE STAAR SCIENCE TEST**
