Week of December 4th in Science

Dear School Family,
 
We will have a test over turgor pressure, tropisms, homeostasis, and a few past test questions this Friday, December 8th.  We will work on the review for this test Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  The next topic in science is genetics.  
 
Tuesday and Wednesday, the seventh grade students will complete benchmarks to see how they are progressing in writing and reading.  These tests allow the teachers to understand how much the students are learning.  These tests are important and will be graded.  Please encourage your child to do their best when completing the benchmarks.  Please make sure that your child gets a good nights rest and eats well to have the best results on testing.  I recommend the students bring a book to read for after the tests and a jacket in case their testing room is cold.
