August 2014

Welcome back to VCMS!  I hope everyone had a fun & relaxing summer!

This month we will begin by looking at the various sources historians must use in order to know what happened in the past.  Our look into American History begins thousands of years ago with the first human beings who arrived in the Americas.  We will proceed from these original inhabitants to the first European settlers (you might be surprised to learn that Christopher Columbus was not the first European settler to “discover” North America).

Washington D.C. Trip

Details about the 2015 8th Grade Trip to Washington D.C. can be found on the Field Trips Page.  This year we are adding an optional 1 day extension to tour Williamsburg, Jamestown, & Yorktown. Please see the field trip page for more details about this trip.
