Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
I hope you and your family are well, and you enjoying quality time together. As we navigate this very unprecedented phase of the school year, please understand I am here for you and your child. Please email any questions you may have. The main district page that encompasses all class work is on: https://www.pearl.k12.ms.us/learn . High School work is near the bottom of the page listed by subject.
The direct link for Physical Science is: https://www.pearl.k12.ms.us/cms/lib/MS01810570/Centricity/Domain/772/PHS%20Weeks%201%20and%202/PHYSICAL%20SCIENCE.pdf

The district is encouraging the use of these digital resources. You may answer these by writing answers on regular paper with clear titles (title of work, page number, numbered items, bullets. etc). Please know that we are asking students to be prepared to submit distance learning assignments when school resumes. This work is designed to reinforce and enrich student skills while schools are closed. This work will not negatively affect students’ averages but may be used to help students meet promotion requirements. Your health and safety are top priority. Work on this when you can, but don't let it consume a lot of your time. Again, please contact me about any questions or concerns.
Physical Science and Foundations of Biology
I am beginning my twentieth year of teaching. I have taught first grade self-contained, 6th grade IBMYP Mathematics and Science, Physical Science, Algebra I, Algebra II, Biology I, Biology II, Introduction to Biology, Genetics, Zoology, Anatomy and Physiology, S.O.A.R., and Biomedical Research.
I will tutor any student that needs additional instruction time as long as the student is constructively cooperating in all classroom activities.
Tutoring before school (7:45 a.m.-8:15 a.m.) or after school (3:30 p.m.-4:15 p.m.) Tuesdays and Thursdays. BRAVO tutoring and make-up work/tests protocol: Students must get a note from me before each date or before 8:15 a.m. Students must drop off the note to their homeroom teacher and make it to my room by the tardy bell.
Excellence is expected. There are four Golden Rules for my classroom: Rule # 1: Results and responsibilities not excuses; Rule # 2: Respect others and their belongings; Rule # 3: Be here on time with materials and work while you are here; and Rule # 4: Keep your work area clean at all times. Consequences for breaking rules: 1st verbal warning, 2nd writing punishment, 3rd parent contact and detention, 4th office referral. If a student severally disrupts the learning process of other students, he or she will be immediately removed from my room and referred to administration. To define Rule #1 more clearly, I do not accept excuses for sleeping, missing deadlines, or not making-up work including tests missed during an absence for any reason outside of the allotted time. (1 day missed: 2 days to make-up work; 2 days missed: 4 days to make-up work; 3 or more days missed: 5 days to make-up work. A student will receive a zero for any uncompleted work not submitted to the teacher under the predetermined formula. No student work will be accepted after the deadline.) I will allow students to re-test on one test within one week of the original testing date. Electronic devices are to be used for instructional purposes and with the permission of the teacher. Electronic devices used for other purposes or without the permission from the teacher will be collected and submitted to the office per school policy. Students are allowed 1 restroom pass per term. Any other personal business should be handled at the change of class, or have a doctor's note on file in the nurse's office. If a student misses more than 8 days in a year long course, he or she is in danger of losing credit for the course. I strongly feel students need to be in the classroom to receive optimal instruction.
