Mr. Hope's Class

Welcome to Mr. Hope's Class!

This site will give you Information for 8th Grade Science and IMS

at Hawthorn Middle School South.

Please visit this page often. It will be a terrific resource for everything related to our class this school year and it will be updated daily.

Please never hesitate to email me with questions!


If you were absent, be sure to turn in assignments that were due.

***Note regarding absences: 8th grade policy is that all absent work will be temporarily marked as a "ZERO" and "ABSENT" in the powerschool grade book until the work is completed and turned in by the student. Once the absent work is reviewed by the teacher, the appropriate grade will then be input into the powerschool grade book. This teaches students self-reliance, accountability and responsibility.

Please see me if you feel you need additional help with science.

After school help can be arranged after I finish bus supervision.
