What's Happening in Anatomy?

March/April 2013

From the Teacher's Desk

We are "Marching" along through the Spring semester of Anatomy A. The quality of assignments and discussion postings is improving. Thumbs up, students. We are still having a few issues with getting assignments in on time. Please correct this! Over the next couple of weeks students will explore the Skeletal System. This module covers the structure and function of the skeletal system, disorders, diseases, and injuries. There is a lot to learn!

Weekly Chats

The weekly chats are held on Sundays at 7pm to better accomodate students' schedules. Remember you can earn extra credit points by attending. Parents please encourage your student to attend.
