James Bowie Middle School

Weekly Homework Quizzes & Assignments

Hello Bowie Bears,

This school year is moving rather quickly. Student progress reports will be mailed to your homes later this week so please check our scientists progress so far. The 2nd Nine Weeks has more challenging than the 1st Nine Weeks. Chemistry is a new concept for 8th grade. Please ensure that our scientists are studying and completing their weekly Edmodo quizzes and other assignments for homework. This gives the students additional practice in this "conceptual" unit of Science. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
