Welcome Back Students! I hope you enjoyed your two week break!
FYI: On-Level Science classes will have an Oceans Quiz next Tuesday, January 13th!
**Change for the Classroom:**
Homework will still be graded; however, not all assignments will be graded for either completion or accuracy. Various homework assignments will be collected randomly and often at the end of the week for the Homework grades to be posted into Synergy! Be sure to keep up with your homework. Daily homework checks will randomly occur! NO LATE work will be accepted!
