Dear Parents,

 

With the Early Release today due to weather conditions, we had to postpone the Westward Expansion and Indian Removal Summative Assessment to Tuesday.  With doing so, we will not be able to adjust the dates as we go straight to the Wednesday December 20th to finish up the semester and the 2nd 9 Weeks.

 

I have attached and posted to my blog the 1st Semester Study Guide.  The original plan was for students to work on this on Monday, but we did not have school.  We will now combine the Tuesday and Wednesdays original to the following (see below).   I have included below the dates for the remainder of the semester.  If students use their previous Assessments study guides, they should be able to complete fairly quickly.
