7th Grade Students and Parents,

Good evening!  As always, I hope everybody is safe, happy, and healthy.

I want to first thank everybody who was able to participate in last week's Nearpod lesson on the characteristics of life.  It was exciting to see students try something new and give such creative answers.  I also loved being able to give feedback during the lesson.

This week, I will continue to use Nearpod to help students review learning from earlier in the school year.  Our next topic will be cells and organelles!  The Nearpod link will be posted Thursday morning, and I will be giving feedback to student responses throughout the lesson.

Please feel free to contact me any time during normal business hours, or tomorrow during my office hours for a more rapid response.  8th grade students and parents, please look out for another announcement tomorrow.

Students and Parents,

Good morning!  I hope everyone is healthy and happy.  By now you are likely aware that we will be utilizing a "Virtual Schoolhouse" format of instruction for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year.  I would like to provide information on what that means for science.

Science Virtual Schoolhouse Information

Students should check TEAMS regularly for updates on each week's learning session.  We will have a Zoom information session tomorrow during instruction time.  Please see the email sent on 4/14/2020 for more information on the virtual schoolhouse.  Please remember all activities will be OPTIONAL and UNGRADED, and no new content will be introduced.

March 2020 Announcement

Students and Parents,

By order of the governor of Virginia, all Prince William County Public Schools will remain closed to students through the end of the 2019-2020 school year due to health concerns caused by COVID-19 (coronavirus).  You may stay up-to-date on countywide updates here.

lease refer to my most recent emails for important updates regarding the state of instruction during this time, including information on how to access optional review activities and resources.  These assignments are provided as an opportunity to review material from earlier in the school year.  I will reach out directly to students should any previous work need to be made up.

Additionally, please refer to my recent email for an updated list of topics we have already covered.  You may view an updated Target Calendar with similar information in my Files and Documents, although we have not yet received instruction about how or if future topics will be taught.

I pray that all students and their loved ones are happy, healthy, and safe at this time.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me through email or Microsoft Teams with questions, concerns, or just to chat - my goal is to be available to students as much as possible.  I will continue to update families regularly as we receive further guidance from administration.

Stay happy and healthy.  I miss you all!

Mr. Godwin
