Units of instruction will include the following: overall health (including physical, mental and social wellness) personal hygiene; exercise; human growth; human reproduction; communicable diseases including STI's; body processes and systems; drugs and their role in our society; Health has been defined as a "state of complete physical, mental and social well-being not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

If a student is absent from class they can see me to get their missing work, or they can access missing work through Google Classroom.
Skyward will be completely updated every 3 weeks. Once an update is complete I will send a progress report home via email. I will do my best to enter scores in a timely manner. Testing dates will appear in Skyward a few days before the actual test. Once the date of the test has passed, Skyward automatically enters an asterisk in the grade book. An asterisk does not mean the assignment/test is missing. It means I am in the the process of getting everything scored and entered. If you notice a 'O' in Skyward it means the assignment/test is missing and needs to be completed/made-up.
The 7th grade team of teachers is really asking parents to check Skyward with your child sitting next to you. Have your child explain the assignments/tests and the reason they were scored like they were. If there are questions or concerns with what you see in Skyward, please have your child contact me first. If this does not clarify the issue, please then feel free to contact me with your questions or concerns. As teachers we are really looking to build self-advocacy skills within our students - thanks for your help with this endeavor!!
I am available to help students after school M-F from 3:15-3:30 in room N103. Please feel free to contact me via email if you have questions about, or need help, with a lesson or assignment.
