Please be sure to bring your Chromebook with you to science class everyday along with your planner, a blue binder with loose-leaf paper, a folder and pens and pencils.


We will create our classroom expectations and rules together and they will be posted on my Google classroom for everyone to view.


The teacher, student and parents/guardians must all work together for optimal student success to occur.  Students must utilize Google classroom daily during their science period and keep up with work posted, submitting assignments when due.  Parents/guardians and students are highly encouraged to view the parent and student portal weekly to monitor grades and assignments, and view my teacher webpage & Google classroom.

The parent portal, Google classroom, my teacher webpage, and email are great tools to utilize and are necessary for parent/guardian and teacher communication.
