This is going to
be an exciting year in Science class. Throughout the year we will be
doing a variety of projects, centers, and other activities that are geared
towards student achievement. We will be learning about a variety of topics such
as food chains, food webs, forces and motion, light energy, sound energy, Earth & space, as well as much

BOOK - Every child was
provided an Agenda Book at the beginning of the school year. Your child
is expected to have his/her Agenda Book with him/her for every class. The
purpose of the Agenda Book is to help your child remember what assignments to
do for homework and when the assignments are to be completed.
Class time is
provided for your child to complete his/her Agenda Book every day. It is your
child’s responsibility to write the assignments in the Agenda Book. You should
check your child’s Agenda Book every evening to make sure your child has
completed the assignments. Please ask your child to see the assignments to make
sure your child completed the work. Also have your child “tell you” about what
he/she learned in class that day.
- We have a school wide Homework Policy. All homework is
expected to be turned in the day it is due. However, if your child
forgets to turn in the homework assignment, he/she can turn it in the following
day for FULL CREDIT. If your child
turns in the assignment TWO DAYS LATE, he/she will earn HALF CREDIT.If the
assignment is THREE or MORE DAYS LATE, no credit will be earned. The
assignment is still expected to be turned in.
ABSENCES - It is your child’s responsibility to ask
the teacher for any missing work. If your child is absent from school for
ONE DAY, your child will be permitted to have ONE EXTRA DAY to make-up the
work. If your child was absent for TWO DAY, he/she will be permitted TWO EXTRA
DAYS to complete the work. Your child will be permitted the same amount of days
to complete the missing assignments as your child was absent.
