HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
New School Year for High School Science
The 2018-2019 academic year is starting great for the Science Department. - We are fortunate to have added Mr. Nuri Bayrum as our STEM and Environmental Science teacher. - Ms. Smith teaches Biology and 1 Forensic Science section - Ms. Coholic is our Biogeochemical Systems teacher with 1 section of Physics, and - I, Ms. Cline, still teach Advanced Placement Biology. This year, I teach Honors Chemistry and Senior College Summit. This is quite fitting as I continue to serve as Academic Advisor for the Class of 2019. Daily success, achievement and respect are being experienced throughout our school. This is only the beginning. My prediction is that this trend will exude throughout the year. It is good to welcome our students back to school and to work with families and the entire school community for the joy of our returning to continue. The Science Departments invites us all to “Have a great school year!” Please, feel free to share your needs, challenges and successes as our marvelous year continues.
