Welcome to Biology. I am Mrs. Malino and I will be your Biology teacher. Biology is the study of living things. This semester we will expore the many topics that relate to life. This is a very constant-paced and often challenging course and we have many subjects to cover. You must do your part so as not to fall behind. My goal is for you to have fun while learning new and interesting facts. Grades will be posted on the computer at all times and are updated frequently. Students are welcome to inquire about their grades on their own time (not during class-unless I allot specific time for this purpose.) I will send home progress reports to be signed by a parent several times a semester. It is expected that everyone follows the rules that are outlined in the student handbook. I can be reached at JMalino@jacksonsd.org.
