welcome to science  


    It is massively important that every student and parent/guardian reads the 2019-2020 Science Syllabus. This outlines the grading policies, expectations, lab safety contract, and how to guarantee success in Science class this year. 
    If you ever have ANY questions you must reach out to me to get help. Besides just coming up to me and asking your question, here are 2 easy ways to get your questions answers:
    1) Email - my email address is paul.strauss@dvusd.org and know that I check it several times each night at home.  
    2) Text Message - you can always text me directly at (602) 345-1867 [Note this is only a text number using Google Voice so if you call it, all you will get is voice mail]
    3) Text Blasts - Another way to stay in touch is to sign up for my text blasts. I will frequently send out text blasts (which can also be received as emails if you wish) giving you reminders on due dates as well as important tips and advice in how to do well in class. Here is how you sign up by texting the following message to the following number:  
     remind 101 text coode
    [Note: normal texting rates apply and you can cancel at any time by texting Stop to that number]
