Welcome Upper School Health :)


Please look out for my emails! Because I will be out for the remainder the year starting Wednesday, May 16th, it is extremely important that you submit all your assignments electronically or to your substitute at the end of each class.


Additionally, your Final Group Project will be a NON-CUMULATIVE TEST on UNIT 5 ONLY. It will be open-note so make sure you bring all your notes with you to class. All of the Unit 5 PowerPoints have been posted below. I have assigned each of you a group. Make sure you communicate with them prior to the test.
