Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.  I hope this year is a rewarding one for you and your student academically and personally. 

Please see below for information and updates:

First day of schoolWednesday, August 12th.  Students will have a regular day schedule Wednesday thru Friday this week, attendance is mandatory as per state guidelines in all classes, and letter grades will be issued accordingly.

Goals: Students will gain an understanding of historical knowledge and concepts in ancient and medieval world history and geography.  Students will learn develop an understanding of the history, geography, culture and religion of various world cultures according to state standards for their grade level.

Expectations: Students will be expected to attend zoom class daily, complete all course work and participate in class discussion.  I will call on you from time to time to answer questions, but please do not see this as a test of your ability.  I believe that students who often refrain from speaking up in class have much to add to the learning process.  By participating in discussion you will help us to create a more vibrant learning environment an ensure your attention is focused on class content.
