You are encouraged to take notes while reading your required grade level book. A Note-taking Guide and a Chapter Summary sheet are available on our website to help you organize your thoughts. The science teachers will have an assessment or assignment for you shortly after you start school in September. If you have read the book and taken a few notes, you should be able to successfully complete the assignment.
