    Welcome to Mrs. Novak's 8th grade Physical Scence and Physical Science Honors Web Page.  

    My office hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 11:00 am and from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm.  You can reach me at 352-222-4938.


    During the school year, all classes were using the advanced textbook.  For virtual school, however, regular students (Periods 2, 4, and 7) will have access online ONLY to the regular textbook, "HMH Florida Science Physical Science".  Advanced students (Periods 1, 3, and 5) will continue to have online access to the textbook we've been using all year, "McGraw Hill Education:  Florida Physical Science".  Please don't be confused by this change in textbooks.  Assignment will be based on the textbook you have online access to.

                                   Until I have my Google Classroom set up, please email assigned work to the above email address.  



    Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.).  These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms.  If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.


    Students and parents , please know that you may contact ESE support facilitators with questions and help with any assignment.  They are Mrs. McConnell at mcconnell.lydia@marion.k12.fl.us, Mr. Robinson at Robinson.Dennis@marion.k12.fl.us, and Ms. Brown at Brown.Greta@marion.k12.fl.us.  Also, note that accommodations for most students are not unique.  Extra time, having directions clarified, verbal encouragement, small group for testing, etc.  should be possible in the home setting also.  Please contact your teacher for clarifications.  You will also be contacted by an ESE teacher to implement a Distance Learning Plan and Log developed by Marion County that will also assist your student with additional support through ESE teachers.
