Getting Use to the Routines!

FMS 8th grade Science is glad we are back and ready to perform with excellence this school year! Parents, please be sure to check your child’s Edmodo account as it will be a huge resource to them the entire school year. This year along with 8th grade Science, Math, and GA Studies are also using Edmodo so students should be familiar with how to navigate as we covered this in Science classes the first few days of school. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us by email. We will be more than happy to assist you. Let’s have a great school year.

Welcome Back to the 2018-2019 School Year!

Hello Everyone! Welcome back to the 2018 – 2019 school year. This year 8th-grade students will get a chance to take a deep dive into Physical Science. This year the Georgia Department of Education has developed new standards for students to dive into. This doesn’t really change how we do things in Floyd’s 8th Science Departement. We are just going to continue with our ‘wow-factor’ as we get our students going this year. Students will learn about the “Nature of Matter”, “Forces & Motion”, “Forms & Transformations of Energy”, “Electricity & Magnetism”, and lastly, the “Nature of Waves”.  Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. We are all here to help.
