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.
