Tuesday 8/7/18

You will check here for bell-ringers that are completed in class.  All bell-ringers will be completed in your science composition book.  You are responsible for completing ALL bell-ringers, except for movie questions or some labs, even on days that you are absent from school.  The bell-ringers will be graded near the end of the nine-weeks grading period.  Each day is worth 5 points each.

You should attempt each bell-ringer in pencil or ink (black or blue ink ONLY).  If you make a mistake in your answer, you should correct the answer in RED or GREEN ink when we go over the answer in class.  Failure to do any of this will result in a loss of some points.  Leaving off the date will result in a one point loss.  IT IS OK TO MAKE A MISTAKE ON THE BELL-RINGER.  IT IS NOT OK TO CHOOSE TO NOT DO THE BELL-RINGER.
