Mrs. Brown's Eastern Hemisphere Class


Image by
Welcome to Eastern Hemisphere at Sabin Middle School.  I am looking forward to our adventure together this year.  My classroom grades consist of a point system based on classwork, quizes/tests and projects.  Late assignments will be accepted up to the closing of each unit either by a test or project.  Once we have moved on to the next era, assignments for the previous era will not be accepted.  Progress reports are sent out in the middle of each quarter and are posted weekly in the clasroom.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me through email or by phone.
Grades can be viewed on Web Zangle through the Sabin website.

Please check your grades and turn in any missing assignments by Friday 9/18 as this will be the end of our unit.
