This week in social studies...

  • In this area you will see the lessons, activities, quizzes, etc. that we will be completing in class each week.  

  • Welcome back for the 2021-2022 school year.  I am excited to start this year on time and hopefully as normally as can be expected.  Please be sure to check this site regularly for a glimpse at what we are doing each week.  A more detailed look at all assignments can be found by having your student use their LaunchPad to login to their Canvas account. Please be sure to check both of these sites to keep up with exactly what is going on in social studies.  I also encourage both parents and students to visit Student Progress Center often to check on grades.

    I can't wait to get this great year started!!
