Dear Parents/Guardians,



Happy Fall!   Everyone is working hard and learning how to think like a scientist!  


It's SCIENCE FAIR Season!  My hope is that my 8th graders will pursue a SF project that makes them excited and happy to complete it!  Parents:  please try to allow them to organize and handle this on their own.  I have personally talked with each 8th grader to make sure they are ready and CAPABLE to do the project they have selected.  Your child needs you as a supplies person (sorry!) and an encourager.  I will grade each step to encourage your child to work on their project in a timely manner.  Let them fly!  It's not about winning a ribbon, but about learning how to do a real scientific investigation and follow through with the formal steps of reporting it.  GREAT stuff to help them gain responsibility!



 **Remember:  8th grade MUST participate in the Science Fair.  The fair this year is on (Monday) DEC. 7th. This is a new date from the previously posted Dec. 3rd.  ALSO NEW:  I HAVE POSTED THE ENTIRE PACKET ONLINE FOR YOU TO SEE HOW I WANT THE PROJECT TO BE DONE.  SEE THE SIDEBAR ON THIS PAGE UNDER "SCIENCE FAIR PACKET" .  DUE DATES ARE IN THE PAPER PACKET.


Next due date: Dec. 2nd: Data, Conclusion, Abstract (all rough draft) due  excellent site for project ideas (cannot copy project EXACTLY; change something)


**All projects are subject to my approval before beginning; PLEASE do not purchase or otherwise invest time in your project until you have gotten approval.  Thanks!



Robotics:  All students are encouraged to stop by my classroom and come build and program! Any honor roll student is welcome!


Your child is part of the new Google Classroom that I have set up for off-site learning in science.  I will give them all the information needed to keep up with what we are learning and have extra time to watch videos/PowerPoints, get handouts, and print notes on what we are learning.  This advantage has transformed how I teach and your child learns!  I am excited to offer this new technology at Mire!  The link for Google Classroom is here on the sidebar.


As always,  if you have any questions , email me at . Please put "Parent Email" in the subject line to get through the spam filter.
