Eighth Grade Updates

Science Updates


We will be balancing equations this week. It is a very hard concept, please make sure your student is on top of their studies. Overlook your child's packet as it is the study guide for the TEST ON FRIDAY. This test will show your students mastery in physical and chemical changes and balancing equations. All assignments, extra help and powerpoint presentations will be posted on Schoology, the class website (sciencerocksthe8thgrade.weebly.com) and on Discovery Ed.


We are currently balancing equations and will have our second weakly test this Friday.

Students should expect a cumulative test on these concepts next week with both Mills & Muolo.
