    Excellence - Respect – Community”

    Excellence is the desire to achieve in all pursuits; Respect is genuine, mutual, and the foundation of a healthy, stable community; Community means working together to achieve common goals…..

     

      During the course we will be learning everything from Newton’s Laws of Motion to the fundamentals of electricity you will be working with your peers to discover first-hand many of the universal principles of physics. 

     

    Requirements- 

    ·         Be Respectful!

    ·         Being on time to class and remain until dismissed.

    ·         Complete all homework assignments, class work assignments, projects, tests and quizzes ON TIME!
