Check Your Grades: Grades Have Been Updated!

At each Assignment Due date, grades are updated by the teacher. Zeros are entered for any missing assignments from the student's schedule. Students and parents should view grades and notify the teacher of any issues. Students are encouraged to turn in missing work for partial credit according to GaVS late policy (click image to see closely.)

You will receive a course update email from me every two weeks, immediately after an Assignment Due Date.

Please read through the newsletter for helpful information.

What are We Learning?

Next Unit: Cells and Cell Transport!

In the upcoming unit, students will examine Cells, the basic unit of life. We'll be looking at how each of these tiny organelles cooperate with each other to maintain homeostasis and keep us alive! We'll complete a resume for Cletus T. Cell and hopefully get him a job, as well as understand the reasons why we need to drink freshwater rather than saltwater. We'll also answer eachother's riddles about organelle functions.

Students, impress your parents by letting them know what cell organelle is pictured. What role does it play in metabolism?
