     Happy New Year!
    Most of what we will do will be through Canvas, but a lot of fun info and updates will be found here as well.  Click around and get familiar.  You should be able to find all the links and resources you need here as I will be updating it fairly regularly.  Think of it as our live and ongoing class newsletter.  Please reach out to me with any questions you may have.  Our schedule is posted on the class website on the 'Mr. Nelson's Homepage' tab.  There is also a separate tab titled 'Middle School Schedule' that outlines the alternation of Schedule A and B.  That alternation is also echoed on the tab titled 'Calendar'.  During our meeting times we will begin class on Zoom.  We will typically hold instruction toward the beginning of our 'period' and will then give the remainder of our time to complete the assignment.  During that time students may log off and work on the assignment, but I will keep the Zoom meeting open and stay logged in in case students need to pop back in for help or to ask questions.  You will be able to find the link for the reocurring meetings when they become available on Canvas within your science section.  You should also have that in your email by end of day July 30th.  Feel free to email me at any time and I will respond as quickly as I can.  I will be online all day during school hours and if you're a night owl, feel free to email me, but know that you may have to wait until the next day for the answer. 
    Hope all is well.  Stay safe.
