Mrs. McClurgs goal as a teacher is to prepare her students for life beyond school. She will make you think. She will challenge you to solve problems. She will teach you to appreciate science and the interaction science has with the world around you. She hopes you will learn to question how and why things work. She hopes to challenge you everyday and she will support you everyday along the way. This is going to be a great year!
Remote Learning: I will be using Schoology as my main source of communication and for assignments. Every day I will post assignments and we will start class together online. In Schoology, you will find the link to the google meets, where we will meet virtually as a class. You will be expected to complete assignments, listen to lectures and collaborate just as you would as if you were in a classroom. You can also ask me questions through email anytime, and or send me a message through remind (which you will get a quicker response) outside of our scheduled classroom times. I have included my office hours below, during that time I will be by my computer waiting for you to ask me questions, or just to say HI!! I hope this is helpful. I have also included the class codes for my Schoology Classrooms, but I checked, and you are all already enrolled in my Schoology Classroom, so this should not be an issue. Please let me know if you have questions or concerns. I hope you are all well and please remember that this is new for all of us and if you are having troubles with remote learning, you need to let me know and/or ask the question, I am here to help!!
Office Hours: (Subject to change as needed)
- Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday - Period 3 9:42-10:34 am and Period 7 1:39-2:32 pm (via email and remind).

- If these times do not work for you, please email me and I will respond as soon as I can.
Attendance: I will take attendance every day during class time. If you have questions about attendance, please let me know.
Grading: Remote learning grades will be determined based on classroom participation, assignments and assessments you complete for the class (just as it would be if we were in a normal classroom). I realize some situations are different than others, please communicate with me and we help try to make sure you do not fall behind within reason. If you have specific questions regarding your grade, please send me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Classroom Codes: - NOTE- Schoology does not allow individuals without an AD12 gmail account to join, so make sure you are using your school account. I cannot add you to the classroom from a non AD12 gmail or email account. Remind sign up, make sure if you are a student signing up you select student. If you are a parent signing up, you select parent.
