The unit 1 Test will be this week either tueseday or wednesday! No worries parents the students have already taken the pre-test or " Almost There" and most students did well. The Unit 1 test will be almost identical to the "Almost There" so the students are well prepared. 

 

Monday students will recieve a Unit 1 study Guide for Homework. It is not for a grade because it is several pages long, but the students have all the information to do each page and I will discuss with the students their areas of weakness, and that determines the pages they should do. In all honesty some students may not need to do any pages at all because I had several students who scored an 80% or above on the pre-test. Amazing Right!!!!

 

We have been working extremly hard in the classroom and it is showing as I had no one recieve less than a 75% C on their progress report. Congrats Students!

 

Also reminder  we will start the process of presenting the projects on Monday stating with volunteers, 

 

Also PSA: Retakes for the Unit 1 test will take place on friday

Week of 5/7/2018

 

The solar system project for my class is due Monday 5/14/2018, The last day I will accept projects is on Friday 5/19/2018.

 

This project is worth 2 grades. It replaces the solar system test and it is counted as a project grade.

 

Students have the requirements for the project and it is their responsibility especially since the project is to be completed at home.

 

This week in class we are also starting a new unit on renewable and non renewable energy.

*Reminder Milestone testing is approaching!

 

 

Garrett Middle School will be testing 7th Grade students online during our upcoming Spring administration of the Georgia Milestones assessment.  6th and 8th Grades will test in paper and pencil format.  The information below is provided to assist you and your student in becoming familiar with the features of online and standard testing.

 

 

 

  • Experience Online Testing Georgia is a digital resource created to provide an opportunity for students to become familiar with the online testing platform.  The website can be accessed through the following link:  http://www.gaexperienceonline.com/. This practice site does not require a log-in and is available 7 days a week.  Importantly, this practice site is not designed as a “practice test” to measure a student’s knowledge of course content and scores will not be generated.  It is intended to allow students to familiarize themselves with the online platform prior to testing. 
  • Practice sessions will also be set up during the school day to provide students a similar opportunity to acquaint themselves with the online testing system.
  • Each grade level has a study guide that has been released by the DOE.  Please be sure to look at these documents.
    • 6th Grade Study DOE Guide
    • 7th Grade Study DOE Guide
    • 8th Grade Study DOE Guide
    • Garrett teachers have prepared readiness packets for each student as Spring Break Assignments.  These will be distributed before Friday of this week. 

 

 

 

If you have questions about our upcoming spring test administrations for Georgia Milestones, please contact Mr. John Chandler at 770-819-2466 x 058 or via email at john.chandler@cobbk12.org.
