Welcome Back

The first thing that was said to me when I walked into Forest Glen to get ready for the school year was, “Welcome Home!” Those were wonderful words to hear and I am so excited to be back home at Forest Glen. I began my career in Suffolk teaching at Forest Glen Middle School in 1990, the year FGMS was born! Forest Glen High School closed it’s doors and the building began a new chapter as Forest Glen Middle School.

I’m looking forward to a wonderful year and I hope  that you enjoy it too. I’m sprucing up my classroom and getting things ready and cannot wait to get started!

Welcome Back to IB Biology

Hi Seniors.

I wanted to let you know that we will be starting with botany this fall.   We’ll be in the laboratory a fair amount and through plants we’ll be able to review lots of biochemistry and the structure/function of cells, tissues and organs.

I am looking forward to a good year this year in preparing you for the HL biology test.   After botany we will go through an ecology unit and then we will spend the rest of the year in human physiology.  It’s going to be a great year.

See you soon.

Mrs. Story

Welcome to IB HL Biology

Welcome to HL Biology!  I hope you are looking forward to the next 2 years of biology.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you.  I will see you next for the 2 afternoons of laboratory work.  The following list of materials is what I would like you to have for our class.

1. A set of white board markers – EXPO

2. A lab journal – Best source: Amazon.com  (Some of you might still have one from freshman bio.  IF it is still in fairly good condition and has at least 60 empty pages, you may use it. ) I would think that you might like to start fresh, but it is up to you.

- 4 x 4 Quadrille

- spiral

3. A 1.5 inch 3-ring binder

4. A good attitude … cannot purchase.

5. A smartphone, or tablet, or laptop will be very useful in class.
