    Welcome to 8th grade.
    Our job this year is to get you ready for high school.
    What does that mean?
    It means it's time for YOU to take responsibility for your learning.
     
    What We're Learning This Year:
    This year we will cover:
    Reconstruction, Western Expansion, Industrialization, Immigration, Urbanization, America Becomes a World Power, WWI, Roaring 20s, The Great Depression, WWII...
    GOOD STUFF!!!

    ALL CLASSES:

    Do not lose your social studies notebook. If you do, everything which has not been graded, will need to be redone.
     
     
    REMEMBER:
    If you miss class for ANY reason, it is YOUR responsibility to any work you might have missed AND it is YOUR responsibility to turn that work in.  If you do not get the assignment or fail to turn it in after completion, YOU WILL RECEIVE A ZERO for the assignment.  This is 8th grade - it is time for YOU to be responsible for your grade.
     
     
    ATTENTION PARENTS:
    Parents, so that your child receives the most from the lessons in class, please to make sure they attend every day.  Classroom discussions cannot be made part of notes and are often the most valuable piece of a chapter.
    If a presentation or major assignment is missed due to absence, an alternative assignment may be assigned at the teacher's discretion.
