REMINDER:

GOOD AFTERNOON  - Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and dads out there - it's been a few months of extra-dedication, so students, please give them a big high-five/hug/kiss.  
 
I am doing this work now, so I can enjoy the day with my family in a few hours. 
 
Please check your assignments/grades and see if you have any missing assignments (65 or lower).  If you already completed the assignments, but I did not receive them, or you need to just do a quick finish, you may send them by Monday at noon.  If you have not completed the assignments, but would like a passing grade of 79, please send them in by Tuesday evening at 7 p.m.    Thank you!

Do your best to solve the equations on your own that we worked on in class.  Go as far as you can - list the chemicals on each side; if you can, write the number of chemcials on each side; if you can, write how many more you need; if you can, play with the numbers to get the two sides balanced.
Good Luck!!!

Just to clarify - no student may have any documents other than ONE document open when taking class notes.  You may not have emails, yearbook, power school,  web sites, or other windows open during class time. If you cannot remember to close your windows prior to coming to class, please feel free to take handwritten notes during class.  
 
As of today, you are responsible for any infractions to this rule - you have been warned many times.  Science requires a lot of note-taking, labs, and short answer responses, which are quicker to type than hand write,  so it is imperative that you do not lose the use of the Chromebook as a learning tool.   
 
However, it is your choice to follow the rules.
