Grade 8 – MAKE UP TEST!

For students that received less then 70% on the Ancient Indian History and Geography Test, there will be a MANDATORY MAKE UP TEST on Wednesday, November 5, 2014, from 3:15 to 4:00 p.m. It is absolutely essential to study and know all the information we have covered in this section. Please mark this date and arrive on time! Each student is required to bring their own highlighters, colored pencils, #2 lead pencils, and a blue writing utensil. (You will not be able to share or borrow during the test.) It is essential for your success in World History I that you get a passing score of 70 or above. (All those who receive at least 70 will have their grade for this test changed to a 70.) Failure to retake this exam on the above date will greatly impact your ability to pass this class second quarter.
