Math 8 Materials

Hello parents and students. The following materials are needed for MATH-8 this year.
1. a 1-inch 3-ring binder
2. loose leaf paper (no spiral or composition books)
3. plenty of pencils (no pen permitted)

TUTORING/QUIZ/TEST re-takes!!!

Tutoring  is offered by Ms. Kindred on Tuesdays, Ms. Ekwuocha on Wednesdays and Ms. Misad on Thursdays. Tutoring will be from 8:15 – 8:50 on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and one after school session on Thursdays until 5:15. Students should report to the cafeteria (no later than 8:15) and wait for either Ms. Kindred or Ms. Ekwuocha to pick them up to take them to our respective rooms. Same procedure on Thursday after dismissal to wait for Ms. Misad. All three of us can tutor 8th grade math.

Quizzes and Tests may be retaken within 4 weeks of the initial date issued. The re-takes are given during our tutoring hours. The highest grade earned will be what is entered in the gradebook.

If a student is absent on a Friday, the missed quiz/test must be made up during tutoring hours.
