8th grade Science Teacher & Trailblazers Community Leader

 Teachers on the Trailblazers DO NOT accept late homework. Please encourage your child to copy homework assignments into his/her assignment books each day. Homework reinforces curriculum and allows students to determine topics that are not understood before a quiz or test. Responsibility to complete and bring homework assignments to each class on time will develop good habits toward success in school.

Science homework assignments will be posted on my web page. Homework is entered after five assignments for a total of 100 points. Each assignment not turned in is a 20 point deduction. Each incomplete assignment is a 10 point deduction. Any assignment where directions are not followed or lack of effort is shown is a 5 point deduction. Expect 4-6 homework average entries each marking period. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email. I am looking forward to having a great year in science class!
