Good Evening Parents and Guardians,
I hope your student is off to a great start this school year. It's a big week for my students in Biology and Earth Science, as all students have their first quiz and first workbook stamp page due this Wednesday, 9/11. If you would like to check on their workbook, ask your student to see his or her "Stamp Page." They should have 9 assignments written down, with stamps for assignments 1-8. If they are missing any stamps, they only have until Wednesday to get late half credit. A list of these assignments can be found at www.dewittebio.com.
Their first quiz is on the "Investigation and Experimentation" unit. For biology, that includes all information on pages 29-71 of the workbook. For Earth Science, pages 29-67. They should re-read assignments and notes within this section to review. They might also find the online review games and practice quiz on QUIA to be helpful. QUIA is an online learning tool that each student can access using a computer with internet and the username and password I gave them on Friday. They will need to access QUIA periodically to take online quizzes or submit assignments.
Lastly, my e-mail address has officially changed to firstname.lastname@example.org, although my old address will continue to work for a short period of time.
I hope this e-mail has been helpful, and please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
