Mr. Huelsman's Weekly Update
Dear Parents and Guardians,
This week in science we are starting a new unit title "Introduction to Living Things." This unit will last until right before Christmas break.
Below are some more announcements and the class schedule. Have a great week!
Retake Rocks and Minerals Test
Changes In Weekly Study Log Procedures
Students are to fill out the log each week as they study and should have a minimum of fifty minutes a week. They have Quizlet and other tools to help them study. They are to have these logs signed each week by their parent/guardian and returned to school on Monday.
I have a lot of students who regularly do not turn these logs in each week and this really adds up and hurts their overall grade in my class. I have also had a lot of parents email my to tell me they forgot to sign the log or the student forgot the log at home. I have accepted these without penalty. However, after the first of the year if a student does not actually turn in the study log piece of paper signed, it will cost points. I will also only accept study logs one week late. I want to teach students to be more responsible in taking care of this each week. I hope you understand this change. If you have any questions, please let me know.
