Thursday and Friday December 3rd &4th, 2015

This is probably the most important movie of our lifetime. Scientists have determined that we are in the middle of the 6th great extinction and hoomans somehow feel that your species will be exempt from this event. It truly is heart breaking that all of these other magnificent species are being driven to extinction simply because you can't learn to play nice with others. Watch this movie.

Countdown to Vacation


We finished the pre-reading of the labs in all sections except Period 2 due to their field trip. I am hoping to be able to fit the lab in, but might not be able to given the time frame I have to operate in and considering that they will be pulled from class again on Friday for another interruption.

In 5th period students worked n Chapter 6 section three until everyone had completed their qtest. Once they were done, I went over several of the problems that were commonly missed.

Brain Bender:

"Therein lies the secret,"said Scheming Suzie. "For you see, there is a seven letter word int he English language that contains eight words without rearranging any of it's letters." What is this word?

There is not one of you I value more than the other on our team and a team has no room for ego. When there is work to be done, I am out there with you working just as hard and getting just as dirty. ALL of us bring something to the team; I have the vision and ability to write the grants, some of you are fantastic with the plants, some of you work better with the fish, and some of you are all Jack of all trades. I NEED us all working together. It's ok to have fun, but there is no room for ego, we MUST have each other's back
