While this site has served me well over the past years, I've now switched over to Google Classroom.  Feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns at apoirier@govwentworth.k12.nh.us.

Welcome Back!

Hello!  I hope you all had a fun and exciting summer.  I was very fortunate to spend a lot of time with my family at home and on vacation up in Maine.  As we settle back into our school lives over the next couple of weeks, there are some new changes with the class.  For starters, I will be teaching two different courses this semester, CTP Physical Science and CTP Chemistry.  As a result, I have changed the format on the blog slightly to have a page for each for each of the two classes.  This is where announcements and updates will take place within the class.
In addition to the changes to the blog, I have also created a Google Classroom for each of the classes.  Much like the blog, be sure and keep up with the classroom, as many assignments will be posted there as well as the dropbox for assignments
  In closing, I'm looking forward to yet another great year here at KRHS.  If there are any questions please let me know.  Welcome back and have a great year!

Check Out Google Classroom!

Welcome back everyone!  Over the summer I started to set up a class in Google Classroom for each of my three classes.  This will be where your assignments can be reviewed and handed in.  This is an amazing tool which should help improve efficiency on my end and make things available to you wherever you have internet access.  Over the first few days, we'll be activating out accounts and logging in to be sure they work.  Your reward; a nice easy 100 on a homework assignment.  As far as your initial log in, you will be given a code on the first day.  Here's the Google Classroom link.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
