Elementary Social Studies Advocates

December Newsletter

Social Studies Newsletter

Welcome to the first newsletter for Austin ISD Social Studies Advocates. Ideally this will mean fewer emails while keeping us better connected and committed to bringing history, geography, government and civics to our elementary classrooms. I am very thankful to have each of you on this leadership team and am so pleased to see the growth of social studies in so many of our schools. Thank you. Beth Hudson
