Class News

Hello Parents, Guardians, and Students:

With the news that schools will remained closed for the rest of the academic year, I will be posting information here about notes and assignments that I have added.  The assignments will not be used for a grade, but are optional and will be given to enrich and give opportunities for students to practice concepts.  All notes and vocabulary will continue to go in the folders on this page under the "Files and Documents" section, but all assignments will be placed on MS Teams.  Each student has been assigned to MS Team, and should be able to access it through their normal log in for office 365.  They can click on the "Waffle" ( ) then click on Teams.

In addition to this, the daily news is continuing and hosted on the School Library Webpages at:

Below I have attached some learning links that you can use while home.  In them you will find optional schedules, activities, and links that you can use to incorporate into your day.

Current Information

(beep, beep, beep)      Breaking News!!!!!

In addition to the activities I will be providing to the students, I wanted to let you know that I will not be available during my normal "business hours".  I have been volunteering at the school and will be there again tomorrow and Thursday.  If you do not receive a response from me in a timely manner, I apologize in advance.  I am not ignoring your emails and will respond to them as soon as I can.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program.....

Assignment/Activity for the week of 5/27/20 - 6/3/20:

This week we will be working on cell division and the cell cycle.  I have provided a review activity titled "Cell Division Practice" for students to work on.  As with all assignments, this is an optional activity.  All review materials will be in the "Review" folder in the "Files and Documents"section.

In addition to this activities, students are allowed to resubmit assignments and do reassessments.  With reassessments, my reassessment policy would still be followed which states that students must have all assignments and Study Island completed for the unit they are trying to do a reassessment for, before the reassessment grade is placed in the grade book.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, and I hope you all are healthy, safe, and doing well.
