February 2017

During February American History students will focus on the administrations of the first three presidents (Washington, Adams, & Jefferson).  During this time, Washington set precedents for the Presidency, Adams had to contend with newly-formed political parties, & Jefferson doubled the size of the United States with a single signature with the Louisiana Purchase.  This month we will also learn about the Corps. of Discovery & the events leading up to America's Second War of Independence with Britain. 

Any rising 8th grade or 7th grade student interested in learning more about the upcoming trips to Washington D.C. and Charlottesville are invited to go to the Field Trips page.
