What's Happening??

We are currently nearing the end of our Compounds & Molecules Unit as well as our science fair projects. The unit test will be on 2/4 next week.

Our Schedule for the Coming Week(s)


Thursday 1/28

We will use time in class to practice and make final preparations for the science fair later today. Students who feel prepared and would like to continue the lab work they are currently doing can do that if time permits.


Friday 1/29

Continue Lab work (Shedding Light and Polar vs Non). Students were given a choice of when to do these (the order). Not only do they need to complete the lab, but they also need to demonstrate their understanding using some sort of media recording.

We will visit the Holocaust Museum in Skokie for our class Field Trip - Students will attend their Encore classes and depart after Encore 3. There are NO core classes today.
