Dear Students,

I MISS YOU!! I hope you are all okay and that you and your families are safe. Spring Break is OVER and it's time to use our brains again to study social studies!!  Be sure to CHECK YOUR EMAIL each day as I'll be sending out emails with tasks for you to do each day. Nothing big, shouldn't take long. It's just enough to remind you of ALL the information you've learned this year so far.  

I am taking make up/retake assignments for the third quarter, so check your grade in StudentVue and get on it! Let's get those grades up. Keep on going, make good choices, and always know I'm here for you if you need me!
