Ms. Torski’s Science Class
Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) Plans
Follow the schedule below for each NTI day. Assignments are due the day we return after an NTI day(s). The NTI day assignments cannot be uploaded to the online classroom due to copyright laws.
I am available for help on NTI days from 9-12 and 1-4 by the following:
