This is an advanced level course intended to further a student's agricultural education after successful completion of Introduction to Agriscience and Orientation to Agriscience. At NMMS, it is only offered to 8th grade students.
This course is designed to develop competencies in the areas of agricultural history and the global impact of agriculture; career opportunities; scientific and research concepts; biological and physical science principles; environmental principles; agriscience safety; principles of leadership; and agribusiness, employability, and human relations skills in agriscience. Laboratory-based activities are an integral part of this course. These include the safe use and application of appropriate technology, scientific testing and observation equipment. In addition, students will have the opportunity to receive high school credit upon completion of this course.
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.
To sign up to receive messages, simply text @agfoundnms to this number: 81010.
