||8th Grade Mission Control
Welcome 8th Graders! The MISSION CONTROL is the place to find out what was covered in class and what was assigned for homework each day. You can read over the Daily Launch, the Daily Mission, and see what homework assignment should have been written in your agenda. Any handouts, worksheets, textbook readings, or links to online resources should be attached under the section called "RESOURCES" for each day's Mission Control.
Use the weekly links on the left to find what you missed on a particular day. Remember that additional details for some long-term or in-depth assignments are often provided on the "Assignments" section of the website!
If you suspect an assignemnt or resource is missing from the Mission Control, or if the page has not been updated by 6 PM, please feel free to email me and let me know your concerns! I try to have the page updated every day by 4:30 PM, but sometimes mistakes do happen!
Our Class Motto:
I want the best for you, and I expect the best from you!
