8th Grade

WELCOME TO 8th GRADE! We’re now the alpha wolves on campus!
The eighth grade team is so excited to have your students in our pack this year.

Schoology – We will be using Schoology for assignments, calendars, communication, and other useful information for students. We encourage parents to access Schoology using the username/password that you child uses. This will help you see class events and upcoming assignments.

Retaking Summative Assessments – Students who score below 70% on a summative assessment are eligible to retake the test. They need to fill out the Summative Retake Contract and return it to their teacher to get their remediation work and schedule the retest.

Year-at-a-Glance Pacing Guides – The Year-at-a-Glance is a document that informs parents and students of the recommended pacing and content standards for selected courses. It includes the topics to be taught week by week each quarter and a list of instructional resources. The Year-at-a-Glance is only a recommended pacing guide; school leaders and teachers make the final decision regarding the pacing of any program of study. The classroom teacher is always the best source of information regarding content and pacing. The Year-at-a-Glance is supplied as a model of one recommended path to the completion of a course.

Florida Standards Student Tutorials – New resources and features have been added to www.FloridaStudents.org.  The number of resources and tutorials is impressive. Be sure to check it out.
