Hello! Welcome to Biology!
Biology is the study of life, and this semester we will read, conduct labs, and participate in activities designed to help you better understand many of the processes and interactions in which living things are involved. We will talk about all kinds of life, from microscopic bacteria to whole ecosystems, in our journey through the study of life. You will also conduct an independent research project that will be presented at a "science fair" at the end of the semester.
All materials for class are located on Google Classroom. Students will sign up for my Google Classroom the first week of the semester. Parents may make a parent account to attach to their student's so they can view student progress. If you need technical assistance with this please contact me by phone or email.

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
