Hi there everybody!
This blog is for anyone but mostly the 6th grade science students in Mr. Russo's class at Crosswinds Arts and Science Magnet school in Woodbury Minnesota.
Feel free to look back at last year's blog as a possible way to explore some of the assignments and topics that we will cover.
If you are signing on for the first time, at the top of the page is a link to "follow" this blog. If you do, you can be alerted every time I add homework, share relevant information, or just rant and rave with entries starting with, "Well back in my day..."
Parents, if you want to know every tiny detail about your student's academic progress, Infinite Campus is the best way to keep up with all the assignments, especially if your child may be "unsure" if they turned in their work or they looked awful shifty and nervous while saying, "Uh... Nope, no homework today... really!"
One of the most important things to understand early in Russo's class is that homework is ALWAYS due on Thursday. If there is school and it is Thursday, your child has homework due for science. OK, the first week of school and the last week of school don't count but EVERY other Thursday, you can count on science homework due. Hint: Look back through last year's blog and you can see some past examples of what homework looks like. (It is hard! Don't try to wait till Wednesday night before starting)
