Just a reminder to parents, please make sure you are looking at
the correct assignments and PDF files as I am teaching 7th Grade Civics and 8th
Grade American History. I will try my best to label accordingly.
All classwork (CW) and homework (HW) for the week are located on
the Monday for that week. Please print that page out and place it where
your child can see it so that they are making sure that they are accomplishing
all of their work. I have also posted many PDF files below that contain
information that has also been handed out in class. If your child loses
or misplaces something, please look below for a replacement. If it is
something that you do not see there, just ask.
If you donate something for the classroom, make sure to send in
the receipt, or a note or send an email to let me know how much to credit you
for PI hours.
