Original post 1/31/17:

On Wednesday, February 1, students with a 3.8 GPA or higher received letters inviting them to attend an informational meeting on either 2/2 or 2/3 regarding NHS. At this meeting, students were informed of the four tenets of NHS – scholarship, leadership, character, and service. They received application packets which are due on Friday, March 31. Students were counseled on the importance of the packets including the essay on leadership and the essay on service. Packets may be turned in to either Mr League (Room 407) or to me (Room 317) by that date. A faculty committee will begin the reading of the applications at that point and students will learn of invitations to join the chapter on May 22. If you have questions, please contact me or Mr. League.

IF YOUR APPLICATION PACKET DOES NOT HAVE THE LEADERSHIP ESSAY PAGE, PLEASE SEE MR. LEAGUE OR MRS. HEIGES IMMEDIATELY TO OBTAIN – YOUR APPLICATION IS INCOMPLETE WITHOUT IT!!!

Welcome to Honors Chemistry!

I hope that you had a terrific break and are looking forward to our new experience as much as I am. You will need a good scientific calculator for this course. Graphing calculators are not needed. If you want to get a head start, you might look at http://www.chem.tamu.edu/class/fyp/mathrev/mr-da.html for content that we’ll be working on shortly.

We are using CourseSites in class and you need to use the code provided in class to enroll. Always refer to the calendar at the top of this page to find out what’s going in class. 🙂

The syllabus for our course is attached and we will review it in class. honsyllabus1617
