August 2015

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).

2016 Washington D.C. Trip Update:  Details about the 2016 8th Grade Trip to Washington D.C. can be found on the Field Trips Page.  This year's trip will run during the last week of school, from May 13-18, 2016. 

The Parent Meeting for the 8th Grade Trip is on August 13, 2015 at 6pm in the VCMS Cafeteria. At the meeting, you can learn more about the 8th grade trip, and earn PI Time for attending. If you are unable to attend the meeting, but would like more information about the trip, please do not hesitate to contact me at Kristofer.Atkinson@tvcs.org or by phone at 352-259-0044.
