• There are no assignments posted in  Microsoft Teams.  You can try to sign on under your  Life Science Class period to submit assignments  or at my e-mail: melissa.leach@marion.k12.fl.us.  Try to remember to put your class period on e-mail assignments.

    You will need to sign in, access Office 365, select Teams, then select your Life Science Period.  You might need a code to access the team; enter code exactly as indicated:  Period 1           9kgh8ml               Period  3      clowuu6            Period   5      2u0q7ty

                           Period 2           wf9u2f0                Period  4      6jnx08w           Period   6       gjjmsuij

    If you have another teacher using Microsoft Teams, this code should work as well for that class.     

    check Mrs. Sherman's website  for links to e-books.

    Time to hit the books again  

    We are now going to have some changes to the routine, as school is online for the rest of the year.  I want to thank you for all your hard work getting used to this new way of learning.  These  changes will be easier for you to manage your class assignments.  Starting this week, April 20th: 

    I will be posting only 2  Bellringer questions per week that will be part of your lesson assignment, for a total of 2-3 grades per week, depending on the due dates.   The grading period is Wednesday-Wednesday.  You do not have to check in every day for attendance.  You will still access the assignments the same way.  Find the teacher website, click on the assignments tab and follow directions for your  assignments.   

    I will be available by phone 815-861-2260  from  10:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m  and 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.  Mon-Fri   Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any problemsquestions, concerns or just to hear my voice.  If you send an assignment to my e-mail, please mark your period number for reference.  melissa.leach@marion.k12.fl.us
