Students and Parents!

Welcome to Science 8 for the 2020-2021 school year! I know this is not how any of us imagined the start of a new school year, but I am so excited to have you join my class. As one of my students, you have been sent an invitation to our Google Classroom. Here are the Google Classroom codes for our class if you did not receive an invite from me: 

Period 1:  ue77w5s

Period 3:  atzzum6

Period 4:  23w7qko

Period 5:  mst257a

Period 6:  swakook

Panther Pod:  6d3bw3q

All Disney Fun Friday:  e6uuzrd      

This distance learning model is new for all of us.  We will all learn and make progress with this learning format together.  It is really important to me that everyone feels comfortable and safe this year. Iā€™m really excited to jump into the science topics you will be learning about this year!


General information:

Weekly assignments will be posted in google classroom on Monday's.

Zoom links will be posted in the stream of the google classroom.

Grades will be posted in Aeries.

Please feel free to reach out by email if you have any questions. 

The whole class will get to know one another very well over the year and I look forward to learning more about you! 

Take good care,

Ms. Stowers 




New Assignment Posting Location!!
During Monday's teacher planning time, teachers were instructed to create a google classroom to post assignments and instructions.  I sent an email to everyone inviting them to join my google classroom based on your period.  Future instructions as long as this online learning at home continues, will be posted on google classroom.  
All Students Periods 1-6:
Please join google classroom for this class and follow the updates from there. 
Science classes
As mentioned before, for this week, I will be posting two assignments.  The work that will be completed will be added to your notebook.  If a worksheet is provided, you can print the assignments and answer the questions or you can write out the questions and provide the answers (don't need to include any images/pictures).  Again for this week, the assignments will be added to your notebook.  
The more detailed instructions will be provided on google classroom soon.  To be continued. 
Hope everyone is staying healthy!

Hi Students and Parents!
If you have clicked on my name to keep up with assignments while we are not on campus and conducting school online, Welcome! But this is not where things will be posted currently.  If things change, I will let you know.  At this time, things are posted under assignments.  If you back out of this, and instead of clicking on my name to get to these "posts", you can click on the assignment number which is currently in the 70's.  (When you click on homework, Science/or Teen Living, and find my name, you don't click on my name, you click on the assignment number that is to the right of my name.)   That will take you to the assignments posted.
Instructions and updates will be posted there.
