Links to Websites for more information on the
topic we are covering

Edmodo


This year we are using Edmodo to do online
discussions of articles we read.


First article will be assigned this week


Why?


It is more user friendly than having an article
discussion on the school system website.


It is more secure than having it set up as a group in
Facebook.


Parents can have access with a parent code that will
allow them to view what we are discussing and what
their child is saying.

Science Fair


Students will be expected to participate in
the Science Fair this year as a part of
STEM night.


More information will be given out in class
and posted online as soon as due dates
have been finalized.
