HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  The second semester of the school year is here!  
Over the next few months students will be reading and working on their SPRING BOOK STUDY.  Please have your book ready to bring to class on 1/22/19.   I would suggest trading books with another pre- advanced placement science student if that option works for you.
I'm looking forward to continuing our scientific studies focusing on the cellular processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration this month and working our way into ecosystems in the future.
