Welcome to Mrs. Matthews 8th Grade Science Website!
Welcome to another fantastic year!
I am very excited to have your student in science class this year and am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development.
This year, in place of a weekly email, I will be using a service called Remind. If you would like to be reminded of upcoming assignment due dates, projects, and tests please go to www.remind.com and sign up to receive alerts from me. You may choose to receive your alerts as emails or text messages. For the 2019-2020 school year you will need to use the following class code for 8th grade: 3a47377
Regarding our 6 week closure:
I will likely be communicating by email and posting resources and learning opportunities in our Google Classroom, however I will not be posting grades at this time. I do expect that students use the resources and complete assigned work to further their learning. Students may submit work but grades will not be posted for any work submitted. I will be checking my email regularly except for weekends and spring break, but I may not be able to get to my voicemails often, so please send any questions, comments, or concerns via email. I look forward to seeing each of you when we return to school in six weeks.
I have had a few inquiries from parents wanting to know how to help their student get into Google Classroom.
Please see the directions for logging into our Google Classroom below:
1st: Go to the Heatherwood Home page
2nd:Please click on Students at the top of the page and you will get a menu
3rd: Choose student tools to the left on the drop down menu
4th: Choose Google Apps for education
5th: Choose Your Science Class (We have used this to take quizzes and tests this year.)
6th: You are automatically in “Stream” but you may also choose “Classwork” at the top. Classwork will have due dates with the assignments. The stream has some of the same assignments and other options as well. I have also posted some notes in the "Stream" section.
At some point it will ask you to login. You have done this before so you should know your user name and password. If you cannot figure out your username and password, you will have to contact the technology department. I hope this helps.Stacy MatthewsHeatherwood Middle SchoolRoom 106Classroom Phone (425) 385-6400 (not helpful during the school closure)
