Unit 1 Test

The first unit test has been scheduled for Friday, September 10th.

This test will cover prehistoric times to ancient river valley civilizations.  This information can be found in the first three chapters of our world history textbook.  Students will receive a study guide to prepare.

Open House

Please mark your calendars and plan to attend our annual Open House this upcoming Tuesday night from 6-8pm.  It will be a great opportunity to meet the teachers of your student.  There is no set schedule for the event.  Teachers will be in their classrooms, traveling teachers can be found in the library.

We look forward to meeting all of you!
