    Here are the Google Classroom class codes for Mr. Ruddy's 8th Grade Science classes:
    Open House 2023-2024 (syllabus) - ff2zgis

    Period 3 Science - ytmphom

    Period 7 Study Hall (LGI) - vytdtaa
    Period 8 Science - 6xscizd
    Period 9 Study Hall (Rm.341) - k6slb73
         Please join your respective class period if you have not done so yet.  Your first task will be to join my Google classroom.  Make sure you choose the correct class code.  For example, if you are in period 2, make sure you copy the class code that is after period 2. I will be assigning new materials that you will have to submit through Google Classroom.  Once you turn in the Google Classroom science assignments, you can't go back and resubmit. Those assignments are one and done. I will do my best to continually update your averages in the Focus grading system. Do your best to complete assignments on-time.  If you do not turn in assignments on-time, it will affect your homework (HCP) grade.  Best of luck, stay healthy, and stay socially distant.
