Welcome to the 2008-2009 school year!

Hello everyone! Welcome to the 2008-2009 school year, and welcome to my blog. I plan on using this blog to keep students and parents on track with assignments in both Chemistry, Supermarket Science (1st semester) and Environmental Science (2nd semester), and I may throw in some things about RHS Environmental Club now and then. Anyway, I’ll update regularly, so check here often!

Chemistry

Here are PDFs of the handouts from the first day of school:

Supermarket Science

Here are PDFs of the handouts from the first day of school:

The Lab Safety Contract for Chemistry and Supermarket Science must be signed by each student and his/her parent/guardian and turned in by Friday, September 5, 2008. Students who haven’t turned in a Lab Safety Contract will not be able to participate in labs.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at ke_ccarman@kentschools.net. Thanks, and have a great year!
