•  Welcome!  There are two main ways to stay in touch this year:

    1. My science classes will be using google classroom as the primary way both parents and students can keep tabs on what we are doing in class.  Students can join the appropriate class now using the class codes below, and parents will receive an invitation to receive class updates after the first week of school via email.   Parents signing up to receive classroom updates will be able to choose the frequency of the updates, and can view late assignments, upcoming assignments, and class announcements. I plan to post daily updates to google classroom summarizing what we have done in class, along with with links to any notes, handouts, etc. 

         1st Period Science:  1tgt45

         2nd Period Science: m3ksg1s

         5rd Period Science: g2fjev

         6th Period Science: ba22pg3


    2.  Parents and students can sign up to receive updates for the Butler, Mozingo, Stephenson, and Thorne team via Remind.  See the instructions below to sign up for either text or email updates.  Remind updates will be used to make annoucements about things such as major due-dates, progress reports, field trips, and other team-wide happenings.    We promise not to bombard you!
