          If you are concerned with your grade, check PowerSchool and submit anything missing on Monday if you want it to count on your Quarter Grade. 

          If you are missing a test, you will need to take it on Monday for it to not be a zero on the Quarter Grade.

        • 10 October - 16 October

          Friday was the end of the quarter, but I will accept your work until the end of the day Monday to be counted for this quarter grade.  I WILL still take it late, but it WILL NOT COUNT to change your grade for the quarter. 

          We will be starting a unit regarding "The Dynamic Earth" which is plate tectonics, volcanoes and earthquakes.  This will last us through the end of the semester.

                    Extra Credit Opportunity: Due Friday!  See the link below to the Virtual Earthquake Handout and Website.  You must submit the answers to the worksheet AND the printout of the "Certificate" with your name printed on it.

                    This project is VERY thought-intensive and must be done completely and properly.  However, it is worth about 20% on your overall grade (if completed on time and correctly).
