    Please, do not hesitate to email me or "Remind" text with questions or concerns.

    I will post my "office hours" soon if you want to call me at school.    671-4900 x59492

    If you do not have the "Remind" app, please download and sign up for my class: Vanguard Physical Science @VHSlearn

    We are still continuing with Ch 17 (see lessons below).  By next week I will let you know soon how you will receive and turn in assignments.

    Study Tip: Re-watch the YouTube videos in Ch 16 and 17.  The links should function.

    Finally, go to your Student Portal and Answer the Attendance Question.

    Hope to see you all before the end of the year!
