Welcome AP Biology students to Distance Learning! We'll figure this out - and get those who are still taking the AP exam, ready for it. Below you will find the letter I sent to you and your parents with all of the links and information about this course and the AP Biology exam. The AP Biology exam will be administered on Monday, May 18th at 11:00 AM. I have set aside every Wednesday to work with students, using Zoom, to practice FRQs and receive immediate help and feedback. The links to the Zoom meetings will be sent out through Remind. For those who have not signed up yet, this is the Remind link: https://www.remind.com/join/8329gk3 The weekly assignments, directions and due dates are below. Please let me know about any concerns or questions you have. Thank you in advance for your understanding and flexibility. Luna
