Wildlife Biology

  •  
    Welcome to Wildlife Biology for 2019-2020
     
    Announcement 4/14/20 for Parents/Guardians
    Google Classrom is the main  mode of delivery I am now using.  Every Monday by 5:00 PM I will be putting out an announcment and delivering the assignments for the week.  I am trying to balance screen time with active outdoor learning. The weekly assignments are intended to take about 2 hours to complete.   I am working on setting up office hours via google meet and hope to be doing that next week.  You or your son/daughter can always email me with questions or concerns.   
     
    Announcement 4/1/20
    Google classroom will be the main mode of delivery I use for curriculum and student contact. 
    I will still use the webpage as a general overivew of the weekly lessons, but this site will not have specific lessons to access
     
    Annoucement for Parents and Guardians - 3/25/20
    I have touched base with my students via Google Classroom.  You can ask them to share this information with you.  This week we are focused on touching base with our students, working with students who are missing assignments from the week prior to break and gathering our wits on potential electronic learning.  There will be no new curriculum next week, but I will be sending out some suggested activities to keep the students engaged.  
    Hope this information helps
    Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.  
    Sincerely, 
    Mrs. Hover

    Announcement for parents and guardians  4/14/20
    Every Monday by 5:00 I will be putting out an announcement and delivering the assignments for the week.  I am trying to balance screen time with active outdoor learning.  The weekly assignments are intended to take about 2 hours to complete.  I am working on setting up office hours via google meet and hope to be doing that next week.  You or your son/daughter can email me with questions or concerns
     
    Announcement for parents and guardians 4/1/20
    Google Classroom will be the main platform I use to deliver content and make student contact going forward. 
    I will continue to use this page as a platform to give parents an overview of what we are covering in Biology for the week. 
    If you want to view lessons, have your son/daughter show you when they are on google classroom.
    Please continue to email if you have questions or concerns.  You cannot call me direct, but I can call you, if you email and we pick a time to phone conference
    Mrs. Hover
     
    Announcement for parents and guardians 3/25/20
    I have touched base with all my biology students and hopefully gave them some assurance on how we will proceed at this point in time.  The focus this week is to touch base with our students, work with students who are missing work from the week prior to spring break and gather our wits for potential electronic delivery of content.  
    Please check Q and if your son/daughter is missing assignments from the week prior to break, tell them to check Google Classroom and submit it or email me if they are unsure how to turn it in.
    Please email me if you have questions or concerns.  I will try my best to address them
    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Hover
