~ W.T. Purkiser

Units of Study

Social Studies: We are wrapping up our unit about the Native Americans who first called our great state home. Students are learning all about the culture of the Cherokee, Catawba, and Yemassee Native American tribes. We will have a unit test on Friday, Dec. 12th. A study guide will come home with your child this Tuesday, Dec. 9th.
