Even if it's currently online and virtual, I'm so glad to be working with students again!
The Covid-19 pandemic may still be with us, and we might be working virtually from home, but we have an exciting semester ahead of us in Honors Math 3!
I see familiar names on our rosters and I see new names on our roster. Regardless of whether or not you've done Math with Mr. Worley before, you can know that my greatest desire is to do everything possible to not only help you SUCCEED in our class, but to convince you that MATH is pretty AWESOME!

Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
