CP Biology Planner 1/24 - 2/2

posted Jan 24, 2018, 8:11 AM by tfloria@nrsd.org
Good morning!

Today is the first day of 3rd quarter, and 2nd semester. Congratulations! You have made it to the halfway point!

Midterm exams will be posted and 2nd quarter grades and semester grades will be posted by the end of day tomorrow in schoolbrains. Report cards will be distributed in the next few days.

Let's start off 3rd quarter in the right direction! A new quarter means a clean slate, and your success is in your control. 
Be sure you are keeping up with your assignments, and study your notes and vocabulary for a minimum of 15 minutes each day, even if you do not have specific homework assigned. 
The topics that will be discussed 3rd and 4th quarter are complex and involved, and so it is crucial that you take the initiative to complete assignments, practice concepts, study, and ask for help when needed. Biology can be a challenging subject for many students - as it involves many new vocabulary, and abstract concepts. 

I have attached the planner for this and next week, which outlines our class agenda as well as upcoming assignments. Be sure to refer to this planner daily to stay on track.

I have also attached a copy of the MA State Biology Frameworks for you to take a look at. The highlighted concepts are the standards we have already covered in class, and those that are not highlighted are the standards we must complete prior to the MCAS exam in June. It is a lot of information, in a relatively short period of time, so your dedication and commitment is vital for your success. 

As a reminder, my help days are Tuesday & Thursday after school, and I encourage you to see me whenever you feel you need it. 

Finally, please remember that Friday is a 1/2 day - and we will be running a Wednesday schedule on that day.

Have a great week!
Mrs. Floria
