WOW! Check out these amazing cell projects!
Progress reports will be sent home at the end of this week.
So far, I’ve been very impressed with how hard students are working. They should be proud of their hard work. Most are maintaining A’s by completing all their work and doing well on quizzes. Keep it up!! I’m proud of you.
If I have any concerns about a student’s progress, I will be contacting parents/guardians.

4th Quarter Test retakes can be taken on June 12th or 13th. Please let me know if you plan on retaking one of the three tests from 4th quarter. Remember, I will average the two scores together. This is an opportunity to improve your grade.
Projects – Students have the choice of completing one of three projects. Options include an Evolution Poster, Biome travel brochure, or Genetic Disorder informational brochure. Projects were explained and assigned on June 5th in class. All projects are due on June 15th at the start of class. They will NOT be accepted late. Students will be given class time to complete them. If they’re not completed in class then they need to be worked on at home. Projects are 10% of the 4th quarter grade.
Project handouts with rubrics are available in the classroom and for you to download below:
