Hello Howard Bulls,

I am proud of the work we have completed this year! We finished our 8th grade curriculum at the end of the 3rd quarter in order to allow time to review for the FL State Science Assessment. The FL Department of Education, however, has cancelled the standardized test, which gives us the opportunity to explore additional physical science concepts.


During this time of Distance Learning, we will be using the Google Classroom platform. My classes will be using the Google Classroom platform in a variety of ways. Please note: You will earn grade/s from Weekly Wednesday Wrap Ups consisting of either homework, classwork, quiz, or test. These Weekly Wednesday Wrap Ups should be accessible from multiple devices such as laptops, desktops, or phones. Online learning and communication is a work in progress, but we can be flexible and positive during these changing times. 


Beginning on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, I will post weekly “Academic Activities” here on my web site. I strongly encourage you to complete each of the activities to help you understand the concepts. I trust you will complete the weekly Academic Activities. You will not be submitting the Academic Activities. Instead, you will be required to complete and submit “Weekly Wednesday Wrap Up” assignment/s. The content will encompass the learning from the week’s Academic Activities. You will be submitting your responses in “Google Form/s” that will be posted by 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday and due by 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday.


It is imperative that you set up your Google Classroom Account as soon as possible, preferably by the end of the day on Thursday, April 2. See details on how to set up Google Classroom Account on the “Physical Science Honors Homepage” tab listed on the left.


The best way to reach me during this time is through my MCPS email:

My office hours will be: 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m.
