Mrs. Seals Class

What is going on in the world of Social Studies

END OF THE YEAR

If your student has any missing or failing work they need to come in for tutoring to get these assignments completed. Tutoring is offered Tuesday-Thursday at 7:45 or afternoons by request.Please be checking your student's grades in skyward to stay up to date.


Sadly it is that time of year when many students are out sick. I know that this is inevitable. If your student is absent it is their responsibility to collect their missing work. A student has one day for each day they are absent to complete the work.
