Welcome

Dear Parent or Guardian,

Hello and welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am looking forward to getting to know your 7th grader as we explore the nature of science. The mission of the ASI science department is to provide a quality laboratory-based science program that fosters a lifelong enjoyment of science while incorporating the Next Generation Science and Engineering Standards. We will be doing lots of exciting labs, projects, and hands-on activities.

Students may obtain current or past classwork by logging into Google Classroom. In Google classroom, absent students will find the daily agenda of assignments, past assignments, class notes, interactive science notebook table of contents, review games and other helpful links.

On my website, I have linked a calendar from Google Classroom for parents to follow. Parents may also use their students Google login to view Google Classroom. I am looking forward to making this year's science class an enjoyable experience for your child. Please email if you have any questions: cristinasoares@cusd.com
