        Hello- I am Mrs. Vondracek.
       I love being a part of this wonderful local community! 
    We are a very active and sports minded family.We have been in the area for 19 years.
    I love to run, bicycle ride, swim, hike, explore, travel and be with my family. 
    My son is 11 and in 6th grade this school year. He's playing football this fall! My husband helps coach whatever my son is playing each season and is the ScoutMaster for his troop.
     We had a wonderful summer and I look forward to a successful school year.
     COURSE DESCRIPTION: In Chemistry, students conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students study a variety of topics that include characteristics of matter, use of the Periodic Table, development of atomic theory and chemical bonding, chemical stoichiometry, gas laws, solution chemistry, thermochemistry and nuclear chemistry. Students will investigate how chemistry is an integral part of their daily lives. At the Pre-AP level, the challenge level is increased for those students with adequate mathematical background by providing additional opportunity for development of abstract reasoning and problem solving skills. This course is appropriate for motivated students considering further study in a science-related field. Students should expect approximately three to four hours of outside work per week, and a calculator (either scientific or graphing) will be needed.
