Updated Grades

The following grades have been added to the grade book: Current Event 1, Science Galileo, and Astronomy Quiz 2.
Notes About Grades:
  • Many students lost points for not including every part of the current event project or not turning one in at all. This hurt some grades, but students can make up for it on Current Event 2.
  • It is a school wide requirement that Galileo test scores are worth a grade; this is also true for Science. A 30% curve was added to each student's test score.
  • In an effort to help balance the Science Galileo grades, the students took Astronomy Quiz 2. This test was based only on what we were doing in class and students had a study guide to help them prepare. Many students were able to bring their grade up.
  • Any student that is unsatisfied with his or her grade ALWAYS has the opportunity for extra credit. Complete extra Science Current Event Projects.

We have been working very hard all week to gather as much information about the solar system as we can! In case you missed a day of notes this week, I will be posting a copy of them online this afternoon (Friday, November 21)!
Remember to complete you study guide for the quiz on Monday!
It took us a bit to get back on track, but here we are! Mrs. Perry's name is officially Mrs. Perry and she can now access her website (and update it)!
To make up for the delay in website updates, here's the beautiful Rosette Nebula!
Remember Current Event 1 (for Q2) is due November 7th!

Poem of the Week

Early Bird

Oh, if you’re a bird, be an early bird

And catch the worm for your breakfast plate.

If you’re a bird, be an early early bird—

But if you’re a worm, sleep late.

~Shel Silverstein
