Welcome Super Sharks!
The Super Sharks Team includes students, parents and guardians, and teachers all working together to make this the best year possible.
Our eighth grade curriculum is challenging and requires hard work, for you are preparing to enter high school next year. We are always here to help you make it a successful year. No student will fail who completes all assignments and exhibits an effort to learn in class.
In eighth grade you should expect to have homework every day. This is an area where some students undermine their success by failing to turn in assignments. Remember, zeros kill your average.
Students who are rarely absent perform better than those who are habitually absent or tardy. If possible, schedule appointments during after-school hours, and limit vacations to official school holidays and breaks.
When absent, be sure to obtain make-up work IMMEDIATELY upon returning and complete it promptly. It is your responsibility to get assignments and make up any work/tests missed.
1.You will believe in yourself and your ability to learn
2.You will treat your work as a reflection of yourself
3. You will take your education seriously
4. You will believe that your actions matter and that you can make a difference
5. You will succeed because it is in your best interest and the interest of society for you to be educated
LET'S GO SHARKS!
