Social Studies 3/7-3/11
Parents and Students - Here's what we will be doing in class this week:
The History Fair projects need to be completed by the end of class on Friday, March 11th. Students will have this entire week to get their project done. The History Fair will be held Wednesday. March 16th at the high school. Students should arrive by 5:30pm. Exhibition of the exhibits will begin at 6pm. Students who created a website should bring their charged Chromebook to school that evening. I will bring the tri-fold presentations.
We are still looking for donations of baked goods (store-bought is fine) and powdered lemonade drink mix. These items can be dropped off in Mr.s Dertz's room at the middle school and at Mr. White's room at the high school.
2017 Washington DC trip:
Mr. Dertz will host an informational meeting for any current 7th grader and their family members who are interested in visiting Washington, DC during spring break of 2017. The meeting will be Monday, March 14th at 5:30pm in Mr. Dertz's classroom. If you can't attend the meeting but you are still interested in the trip, please let me know so I can get the promotional materials to you.
