LHR 8th Grade At-Home Learning
Week 7 - May 4-8, 2020
Welcome to Week 7 of At-Home Learning at L.H. Rather. It's hard to believe we are already in Week 7. Our teachers and staff continue to work hard to prepare learning opportunities designed to help you be prepared for success next year. Make sure you complete all assignments, submit them (in Google Classroom or by returning paper packets), and respond to teacher calls and emails each week so you are on track to complete the 4th quarter successfully.
Progress Reports were mailed home last Wednesday. Only students with incomplete work and those with unsatisfactory work will receive progress reports (each subject has a separate Progress Report). If you do not get a Progress Report by mail, then your work was considered Satisfactory/Passing by your teachers and you are on track with At-Home Learning. If you receive one or more Progress Reports, please contact your teacher(s) to discuss what you can do to complete missing work or improve your score on unsatisfactory work.
Remember: If you struggle on a particular assignment, or are not happy with your "score" on an assignment, you need to join your teacher during "office hours" or call their Google Voice number so he/she can go over the assignment with you for "tutoring/corrections".
If I can be of any help to you and your family at this time, please let me know. Together we are better!
I miss you guys,
One Tribe ~ One Team ~ One Family ~ One Dream

8th Grade Social Studies
Great job on the year review we have been doing you guys rocked it! Now we are going to put that review to use and do a practice STAAR test. I have broken this up in to two weeks so that we will do have the test this week and half the test next week. Take your time and do your best! You will create your own document in google docs and number it to make the STAAR test answer document. You only have to put the letter to the answer of you choose.
Create and number a document to match the practice STAAR.
Turn your document into google classroom.
8th Grade Science
During this 7th Week of At-Home Learning, we will have a concept review in Quizizz before we get into new material next week. This is a review assignment with only a small amount of questions. The purpose of this shortened assignment is to give you a chance to make up and get caught up on your missing work.
If you received an Incomplete on your Progress Report, use this time to get the assignments caught up. If you received a Failing grade, use this time to redo your work to bring your grade up to Passing. There will be no assignments added into StemScopes this week.
Your first priority is to complete missing or failing assignments. After that is done, then complete the Quizizz in Google Classroom.
If you have any questions, join me in video during my ‘office hours’, call me at 903-225-9772, or email me at email@example.com.
