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 and tour campus.  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!

Unit 1 Test

The first unit test has been scheduled for Friday, September 9th.

This test will cover prehistoric times to ancient river valley civilizations.  This information can be found in chapters 1-3 of our world history textbook.  Students will receive a study guide two days in advance to prepare.

World Regions will also have a map test on the same day.

Make sure you prepare, tests fall into the summative category which equals 65% of your quarter grade!
