This site is designed to serve as a communication tool and to help keep you and your student up to date with the activities and requirements of my class throughout the year. You will find a tab located at the top of the page for the variety of classes and activities in which I am excited to be part of. Each tab will then have more information that you and your student will want to look over and use on a daily basis. I will update all information weekly. Please be aware that assignment information may change due to the pace of the class and will be updated as needed. You may contact me at any time through email, using the "Contact" page on this site.
Week of 9-11-17
This week we are preparing for tests in multiple classes. Please talk to your student about what they are doing in class and make sure they are prepared for the test next week. Also, many students seem to be having trouble getting work turned in. Please remind your student to use their planner and stay organized with their homework. I want each and every student to be successful in my class and I believe that starts with being organized and completing each assignment.
Week of 9-4-17
This week we are focusing on content and getting familiar with the text books for each class. Please check with your student about assignments that are assigned and notes that are due for the week. Grades 9-12 will be required to take notes and turn them in on Mondays. I will keep students informed of any changes that need to be made, but so far we are on schedule.
There will be some tests in the upper level classes next week so please chat with your students to see when their test is schedules for and I will also post them next week to the assignment pages of this site.
Week of 8-28-2017
Please check the weekly assignment tabs for each of the classes. Weekly assignments and activities have been updated. We will be in the lab for the next few days to help students get familiar with lab procedures. We have also began getting familiar with our text and classroom procedures. Classes 9-12 have a page in which I will provide the notes presentation each week. Presentations will be provided by Thursday of the week and students will have until Monday of the following week to take notes over the presentation and turn them in for a grade. This was a suggestion made by the students. It is the goal that students will now be able to have deeper conversations when covering the content because they are not so focused on the note taking task.
Welcome Back! I am excited for the year to begin. Check out my PowToon and get ready to the fun to begin!
