• Dear Students,


    I'm still missing about 1/3 of y'all on the "Remind" app.  Please download and sign up for my class: Vanguard Physical Science @VHSlearn  Remind is the simplest and quickest way for us to communicate.

    Ch 19 Chemical Reactions Lessons, Videos, and Worksheets are now available.  Please watch all of the videos and complete the worksheets before taking the online assessments.


    Many of you did not complete the Ch 19 Assessments.  They are currently re-posted until Friday May 29.

    Ch 19 Section 1 Assessment

    Ch 19 Section 2 Assessment

    Ch 19 Section 3-4 Assessment


    If you scored low on any of the Ch 19 Assessments, your test has been re-opened to try again for a higher score.  I had to do this individually, so if I missed your test, just "text" me on Remind.



    Ms. Fagan
