    Good evening students and parents.  Have a safe and fun day tomorrow.  As a reminder Friday the SIP reports are due.  The following Friday the Board is due. In addition we will have a midterm covering Standard 1 - 13.  This gives the students an opportunity to see what they have forgotten or still need to learn.  We are focusing on the idea that we learn to build ideas onto one another and not to be forgotten after each test. For review the students were given a review sheet that can be found in my files and documents if they lost it as well as the key.  In addition, the midterm quizizz code for is 283566.

    This week we should be reviewing for the Ecology test, Final Exam and working on our final projects.  The Ecology test is Friday for the students who have not already taken it.  I will be passing out the review sheet today for any student who did not pick it up earlier.  I am out of the building tomorrow and Thursday.  The sub has review activities for the students to work on.  I have set up a Quizizz code for review.  To join the game go to and use the code 819879.  The Final Exam is Wednesday after Memorial Day May 30th.  Students should use all previous review sheets to study.  The test will cover standard 1-23 and there are no retakes for this exam.  It will count as a single test grade. As we ae getting down to the wire I have made an adjustment to make it a little easier since I have many students who will not make their final projects in time.  I am going to average all the smaller projects/activities with the final larger project.  Point wise this means that students who did all the required activities leading to the test will have a B for their Project Grades.  Those that do the final project will have the opportunity for an A.  Students are welcome to continue working on these projects until June 1st.  ALL assignments are final at that point including retakes. Look on my web page fur further resources and information. Have a great week.

    Last week we finished the unit on Evolution.  Students folders should be filled in and complete.  The vocabulary key and review key are online.  The test was moved to Thursday per the request from the District. The quizizz code is 393319.  Our next unit is on classification.  We will study how we classify and name organisms organisms as well as how to use/make a dictomous key. Our next project will be the students making a dictomous key.  Next week we will complete the dichotomous keys and move on to The Taxonomic levels as well as what are characteristics of the different Domains, Kingdoms, and Phyla.

    Hope everyone is having a great week.  Because of the days off and late starts we are a little off from where we were expected.  Every class has now received all the notes for their tests.  The test on Evolution (standard 14 and 15) will be next Wednesday regardless of the class. There have been two projects for this unit.  One on the Tortoises of the Galapagos and one called Rat Island that focuses on Natural Selection.  We will spend two days on Fossils and then review in periods 3-5.  Sixth period will be moving on to Classification early.  The review guide and answer sheet are available online.  Students are to join the game with code,696835 at On Monday of next week, we will be having a special presentation by our counseling department called Flirting not Hurting.  There is an attached letter. The second half of next week we will be working on Dichotomous Keys and using Binomial Nomenclature.  Opt-Out Letter.pdf
