During this unusual time of distance learning, our main method of communication will be Parent Square. Check your messages for an invite to the first Zoommeetings on Monday August 17th.
Parents can also add their contacts to Google Classroom.Please make sure you have filled out your registration paperwork with the office properly so that students are automatically enrolled. Classroom codes will be provided by Ms. Bliss for any students who do not get automatically enrolled.
Sign up for Remind.com! The Remind app is a great way to contact Ms. Bliss outside of class or office hours for questions or comments. You will also get regular reminders of upcoming assignments such as homework, tests, projects, deadlines and announcements sent to your phone. You can enroll by clicking the highlighted course title or by sending a text to the phone number 81010 and adding the message @biopirate.Detailed instructions to set up phone or email notifications are available in English or Spanish.
The Syllabusfor Biology outlines class objectives, procedures, required materials, rules, grading policies and course expectations.
The class Bio Calendar and Agenda tab will list the weekly agenda, warm-ups, assignments and due dates. Sometimes, video links, handouts and other helpful resources may be posted here as well. Eventually we will use other tools such as Schoologyas our primary hub of communication.
The class Facebook page is an easy way to share fun or interesting science news and keep in touch after the course is over.
