Students: As we enter a new phase of teaching remotely and you doing assignments remotely, please have patience; we are all learning new things to do. I have posted assignenments for one week. I will post new assignemnents every week. Do these to the best of your ability and e-mail me your answers and I will grade them. If you do not have access to a textbook, go to the Marion County Public Schools website (MCPS) and log into your student website with your user name and password; Click "course schedule" and then click on the etextbook next to your course name. You should be able to access any online book for any of your classes at this site. If you are unable to access it, answer the questions to the best of your ability using any resources available to you and grading will be very generally done for this fourth quarter. You can reach me by e-mail anytime or telephone at (352) 671-4900 Extension 59494. I realize some of the papers may not appear perfect on this site, but please try to tolerate the imperfections of the site we are using and do the best you can to complete them.
Hopefully, we will return before the end of the year and I hope you stay safe, well and active in your academics. I will be posting grades, so please check them and if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
William M. Cherry - Environmental Science 2019-2020
Welcome to Environmental Science for the 2019-2020 and school year. This is a required course for graduation from High School. Your child will be given a syllabus that explains the details for the course and the items your students will need for my class. I ask that the students be present in class and on time to school and follow the school rules and my classroom rules for behavior. I give chapter guides for each chapter that explain to the student what they need to do to achieve success in this class. It is not a difficult class, but rules must be followed for a good school year.
Please contact me at Vanguard High if there are questions, or contact me through the school's e-mail system (my e-mail is William.Cherry@marion.k12.fl.us) if you have questions or concerns. Please make sure you sign up in the guidance office for access to parent/student portal so you can track your student's grades at anytime in the year. If there is a discrepancy, please contact me and we will sort it out. Again, welcome to Vanguard High and my Science class. Let's have a successful year!
