Today we are going to review unit 4: Drugs, Toxicology, Blood and DNA at 1pm. I have 3 Kahoots we can play. I am also posting the unit test. It is due on Friday, 5.1 @ 11:59pm. The next 2 weeks, you will have a project to do instead of a final exam. This project will be a great grade booster for those of you sitting on the fence between 2 letter grades.

All Students 4/13/20

Below is our new schedule:

These will be the times I will be available to you based on the periods. I know that many of you have seen Dr. G’s 1-page announcement on grades. Here is my take on it. If your grade as of March 13th is not where you want it to be, then keep doing the assignments given. Since your grade cannot get any lower that what it is as of March 13th, any work done now can only boost your grade. It just makes sense to push for that A.

A message from PEBBLEBROOK HIGH SCHOOL

PHS Community,

Attached are some additional documents that will hopefully be helpful in clarifying questions and concerns you have. As you peruse this document, please sit with your student to review it carefully and make the best decision that supports your child’s academic needs.

PHS teachers are committed to contining to provide your students with access to learning in various platforms. School buildings are closed, not the process of learning, teaching or engagement. For those students who continue to stay engaged in learning we are excited to announce an incentive program called Stick, Stay and Soar. This program will highlight students weekly who are committed to virtual learning and continue to stay engaged ( even if they have an A in the class). For their continued participation, teachers will nominate students each week and thanks to our PTA and a possible additional funding source we will offer digitial gift cards through drawings to these students for their continued work. While the final grade is important, we dont want any of our students to miss out on the exposure to standards and learning that they will miss if they disengage now. A grade of an A now only singifies mastery of a portion of the standards as we raise the academic expectations for students we want our kids to have full exposure to all of the standards. We hope that Stick, Stay and Soar will be a catalyst and incentive to ensure that our kids stay invested in learning and preparing for their academic future.

Due to Spring Break, after this email I nor our staff will be available via email until Monday April 13th. The goal is for them to have some time to relax and disengage from technology and get a much needed break with their own families. Please respect that wish from me if they dont email you back this week. I will continue to update you as new information is shared from local and state platforms that impact our students. Please know that my resolve and committment to PHS is just as strong as ever. I am fully invested in the success of the PHS community during this time and am here to support you.

Have a great Spring Break

Dr. G
