• Hello students and parents!


    Thank you for checking in with Mr. Thornton's 7th and 8th Grade Science webpage. I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy during these trials. As we try to maintain a normal way of life, I will continue my classes online in google classroom. Assignments, video/voice lectures, and directions will be posted for each classroom before we return on the 6th of April.


    Students: Our classroom will be set up differently now that we are online, and as such expectations will be different as well. We will cover some of those new expecations on April 6th so it is vital that you are checking this page as well as my google classroom page daily to be up to date. Google Hangouts will be set up so we can chat virtually at the following times

    Block 1 - 9:30am

    Block 2 - 11:00am

    Block 3 - 12:30pm

    Block 4 - 2:00pm

    Please check google classroom on Wednesdays and Mondays for the code/link you'll need to access our virtual classrooms!


    Parents: Please keep an eye on your emails as that will be my primary mode of communication with you going forward. You can also expect phone calls if I'm struggling to connect with your child online to work out a solution wherein they get a sound education despite these strange times.


    As always, I am available by email at (john_thornton@abss.k12.nc.us) anytime and I will update this page with further directions as we proceed through a new chapter of our science class together.


    Yours in Service,

    John Thornton
