Parents and students, the assignments listed are due in three weeks. Complete each assignment for Science and Social Studies by labeling your emailed document or notebook paper with a Subject Heading SCIENCE or Social Studies, with the TITLE of the assignment, your full name, and date. Please write neatly and legibly. Below you will find a list of assignments to complete and review before you return in three weeks. Please complete them all and email them to me at email@example.com or bring them back completed when you return.
