Mr. Kristofer Atkinson « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

September 2014

At the beginning of September students investigate the first English attempts to colonize North America (Roanoke, Jamestown, and Plimoth...yes, that is spelled correctly). ;-)  We will also discuss the founding of the 13 British colonies.  U.S. History classes will take time out of the regular schedule on September 17 for Constitution Day and at the end of the month for Freedom Week.  During this week we will investigate the importance of America's Founding documents (e.g., Declaration of Independence/U.S. Constitution).  

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.
