Hello to all A and P, IB Biology, and Biology I students and parents! We are undergoing some very tough challenges that are greatly impacting all of our lives. In the interest of maintaining some degree of nomalicy, I will be providing lessons and activities using Canvas and Google Classroom. My preferred method of communication will be through the Canvas notifications and email. All students have district assigned Canvas accounts and Google Classroom codes are posted in the course syllabus. I am primarily concerned about everyone's welfare and wish you all health and strength during these trying times. I look forward to overcoming the obstacles of this new learning platform, building positive learning relationships with students, and making the 2020-2021 a productive year for all.
