Parents and Students - Here's what we will be doing in class this week:
6th graders will continue learning about culture. This week, we will focus on cultural conflicts that have led to wars and genocides. No quizzes or tests this week.
7th graders will continue studying the American War for Independence. No quizzes or tests this week.
History Fair Update:
We will have History Fair workdays Monday and Friday for the next couple weeks. History fair projects are due FRIDAY, MARCH 11th. The History Fair will be WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16th at 6pm at the high school. Students will need to be at the high school by 5:30pm. Students who made a website should bring their charged Chromebook that evening. I will bring the tri-fold presentations and research papers over to the high school. It is important for students to attend. Students who do not attend will lose points on their project! Please contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
