Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to South Laurel Middle School! I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you, and I looking forward to a happy and productive school year with each student putting forth their best effort. Below is a list of the course requirements, policies and procedures. Please take time to review the class syllabus and sign, date and return the attached lower sheet.
Students will build a solid foundation of knowledge, skills, and strategies that will be refined, applied, and extended as students engage in more complex ideas, texts, and tasks. Students will be introduced to various areas of science: Physical Science, Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems, Earth Systems, Space Systems.
POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
