Friday 1-25-13 2 hr. early dismissal

Wow!  Today school was closed 2 hours early because of the weather.
Blocks 1 and 2 worked on collecting data for the Paper Clip Activity.  I checked off students who had signed Class Letters and Safety Contacts.  Block 4 barely had time to do anything. We will have to catch up next week. 
Homework:  Signatures if you still need to . . .  You will need a binder for this class AND a pocket folder.

Thursday 1-24-13 2 hr. delay schedule

Happy first day of Introduction to Chemistry and Physics (ICP)!
Our classes were cut short today because of the weather conditions.  Today, we reviewed the Class Letter and the Science Safety Contract.  We also began our first activity - Paper Clip Lab.  This activity reinforces data collection and line-graphing.
Homework:  Students need to sign AND parent/guardian also needs to sign BOTH the Class Letter and the Safety Contract.
