As we conclude the 2016-2017 school year there are some important dates that affect my 8th grade students. The students have been working on their "Force" study. 90% of this work has been done in class in preparation for the final Force activity, that will be done in class, the week of May 15th through May 19th. The assignment will be due at the end of class on the 19th. The grades are current on the Aeries portal and no additional grades will be posted until the week of May 22nd. Students who are going to Washington, D.C., will be excused out of the Force assignment without any affect on their grade. The week of May 8th will have a few assignments for the student's to complete. Time will be allotted in class to work on these assignments, however, if the student does not complete the assignment in class then it needs to be completed outside of class. The Science Notebook will be due on May 19th at the beginning of class. Students will return their home use science textbook on May 19th. Finally, ask your student about any fines they have. Students with outstanding fines will not be allowed to participate in the end of the year activities for 8th graders. All 8th grade students are enrolled in summer school at ERHS. Contact the high school for dates.
