    Hi Students!  I hope all is well.  This week you have 1 assignment to complete the Physical Science multiple choice assessment.  Please take you time and make sure you are doing it on your own.  See what you truly know.  As we draw to the close of the year, I want you to really think about who you are? How do others perceive yourself?  What impact do you have on your friends and peers?  Are you living your best life? Are you honest with yourself and others?  Do you have morals and values that keep you on the right track?  Integrity what does it mean to you? What do you aspire to be and have you aligned your goals to be successful and accomplish that?  How can you be a light for others  and what have you done and are proud of?  Can you break the cycle of bad habits that you have come to believe is good?  So I want you to think about it .

    This week is about Light! 

    Light in times of Darkness, is what guides us to be more than what we are today. You are the Light, so don't forget to shine.

    Good Morning Exceptional Scientist! I hope everyone had a blessed holiday weekend! I send many blessings to you all and your families. Students a reminder, please enter your work in Google Classroom (if you have access) and not on my school email. It's so important, because I receive so many emails I may miss it.
    REMINDER: Please make sure you are making your work authentic to you, and answering questions in your own words. Make sure answers are not directly from the text or from your friends. Although, the answer to the CFU for Electromagnetic Waves notes was posted, it should have not been copied and pasted as your answer. You should have written in your own words. You all are bright and intelligent students and we expect you to read, write and think. Respect yourself, your classmates, be responsible, have integrity in all you do!
    Have a Blessed week and possible test at the end of the week show what you know.

    PLEASE READ FIRST  STUDENTS!!!!

    Welcome Back my Exceptional Students! ! I miss you all so much!!  Please, make sure you check the website under the Physical Science Notes/Lesson tab for all assignments.  I suggest students to save their assignments in a file, so they can send them easily to me.  All notes are setup in the focus note-taking formatt, so nothing new.  You can also take pictures or scan your written work and send it to me.  Please look out for emails from me for your learning checks, which will be weekly.  Hopefully by tomorrow I will have reached out to you all on one of the many platforms available!  Look out for my emails!  Also, I need to know if you cannot access your e-textbook online, a quick email is fine.  Please read all information available for you, especially how to access your textbook.  My website is the only place to get assignments until further notice.  Read for Understanding, and follow the directions on how to use the textbook, you can find instructions here on my website.  Get in the habit to read my announcements or my home page first, each week until I can establish a better platform for contact.  Do not email your assignments until I give you instructions.

     

    Miss you guys and I look forward to seeing or hearing from you soon!
