Students have been assigned a famous scientist to research for their first nine weeks project. It is due on September 14th. STUDENTS PLEASE DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!!! IT IS 1/3 OF YOUR TOTAL GRADE. 
I understand that not all students have Internet at home. Students will be allowed to research during their encore classes with Mr. Davis and Ms. Barton. Students may also visit their local library as well.
