We have finished a successful 1st Quarter in our new school.  We celebrated the end of the 1st Quarter with an all-new Gold Team Science in Action video.

We also started a new and safe social networking side called Edmodo.  Currently, we have more than 300 7th and 8th graders participating in Edmodo.  Parents are also invited to join our Edmodo group with a special parent code.

Congratulations on making it through the 1st Quarter!
 
 
The all-new Gold Team Science website went online today!  It features a link to a new social learning and sharing site called Edmodo, replacing the Moodle which had been in use during the past five years.  Discussion forums, one of the more popular features of the Moodle, will now take place on Edmodo.

The site also contains links to PowerSchool and of course, our very popular Science in Action videos.

Students:  Are you bored this summer?  Get an early start by  enrolling in Edmodo now.  All you have to do is click the Edmodo icon on the Gold Team Science home page and register.  Then email me with a request for a registration code.  Once you have the registration code, you'll be enrolled into the Gold Team Science discussion forum.  By the way, it's open to all ALMS students.  You do not have to be on the Gold Team to be a part of our discussion group.

Parents: You may also register on the site if your child is registered.
