Introduction to Agriscience
This is a beginning level course intended for students who have never taken Agriscience previously. At NMMS, it is typically offered to 6th grade students.
The purpose of this course is to assist students in making informed decisions regarding their future academic and occupational goals and to provide information regarding careers in the Agriculture, Food and Natural Resource career cluster. The content includes but is not limited to agricultural literacy, importance of agriculture, the role of science, math, reading, writing, geography, history, and technology in agriculture, plants and animals, and sources of consumer goods from agriculture. Reinforcement of academic skills occurs through classroom instruction and applied laboratory procedures.
To enhance home-school communication, I plan to use an app called Remind. This app was designed for teachers and allows me to send reminders about classroom happenings via text message. I have found it is a quick and effective way to get messages to you about important things that are happening in class.
If you are interested in receiving these messages, follow the directions found below. Standard text messaging rates will apply. One neat feature of this app is that all phone numbers are kept private. Also, you will not receive any advertisements.
If at any time you would like to stop receiving text updates, simply text STOP to the same number.
