Update 3/22/2020:
No new work is being assigned at this time. I encourage students to review past material available from the link below. If you have access to Microsoft Teams, I have posted two videos on meteorology. Feel free to view them, and contact me with any questions. If you cannot, don't worry.

Useful notes for Earth Science students can be found on the files and documents page.

Additional review videos based on the list of learning targets will be posted over the next few weeks:
