Parents & Students

The emphasis of biology is the study of living things, but we will also explore topics in biochemistry, geology, and ecology.  Science affects you every day in many different ways and it is important that you have a basic understanding of biology.  Don't be afraid to ask questions.  (Someone else is probably confused too!)  Please feel free to stop by after school.

Classroom Rules

Our class has four basic rules all students will need to honor.  It is extremely important that everyone follow these rules in order to improve everyone’s success in learning.

  1. Be on time.  When the bell rings, you must be in your seat ready to work.
  2. Be responsible.  Come to class prepared with all necessary materials (paper, pens/pencils, Interactive Notebook—notes, class work, completed homework, etc.).  Pay attention during class, turn assignments in on time, stay on task, etc.
  3. Be respectful.  Respect yourself, your peers, your teachers, and your school.  This includes:  no put-downs, no foul language, no calling out of turn, picking up after one’s self, taking proper care of class and lab materials, etc.
  4. Be honest.  Do not copy or cheat on ANY school work.  Be honest when communicating to others.
