Today we talked and took notes on our Pruning Lab and FFA today. Here they are if you miss anything or were not here.
Today we are discussing about the SAE project. This is a semester long project, that is 20% of your grade! I have given you a packet. You must fill out and turn it you project agreement form, your project idea must be approved by myself before you can start. Your agreement contract needs to be turned in by Thursday, August 25, 2016. You cannot start until you are approved. This project is not a something you should put off, it requires 12 hours of work. I will attach the introduction part of the project. YOU DO NOT WANT TO LOOSE YOUR AGREEMENT FORM YOU WILL ONLY GET ONE (if you loose it, it will be reflected in your grade for the form). The agreement form is a separate lab grade.
I am glad to have each and everyone of you in my classes. I know in the beginning we had a rocky start with myself be the head of senior project and not being able to be in some of the classes. Now that is behind us I am excited to spend this semester with y'all. Our first group activity has given me a great first impression of you guys. I am very lucky to have this group of hard working students. I have your first grade in synergy (Chapter 1 Study Guide) if you have a 0 in this means I did not get it so make sure you turn yours in.
I have passed out the syllabus, you needed to get the last page signed and turned into me. Here is the syllabus in case you have lost yours or if you need future reference to it
