Welcome to Grade 8 Computer Science, where we will spend the year exploring the principles of computer science!
-Bring something to write with.
-Bring headphones (see me if this is a problem).
-Please spend the first 10 minutes of each class practicing typing. Typing.com, Nitro Type, or any typing sites suitable for middle school students are fine.
-If I am out sick, please see my Sub Plans page for your assignment.
–Google Classroom will be used for all of our class documents, links, assignments, etc. You must check Google Classroom daily.
Please refer to the Cell Phone Policy outlined in your Student Handbook. To summarize, your phones may not be used or even in sight unless a teacher specifically tells you to use it for an educational purpose.
All of your assignments will be given a point value. The points will be averaged at the end of the term to find your term grade. Your term grades will be averaged at the end of the year to find your final grade.
Extra points can be earned or lost based on effort and class participation.
You can always check the status of your grade in School Brains.
