8th Graders – 
(Computer Science Discoveries) are working to complete their final big programming project for this semester (9 weeks).  They will be creating an interactive greeting card using the code they have learned so far.  This project will serve as their gold score 9 weeks test.  Students have access to this at home.  Any student absent should try to complete as much at home as possible before returning to school.  These tasks can take considerable time to complete.  The card is due by Monday, 12/11.  However, extra time will be allowed for students who are behind.  The card and all lessons in Unit 3 up through Les. 14 are due by the end of the day Thursday, 12/14.
