Social Studies

New Year

I am really enjoying getting to know all my new students. I believe we are going to have a great year. Thank you for sharing them with me.


If you have any questions or concerns please send me an e-mail at dcantrell@Jackson.k12.ga.us I will get back with you as quickly as I can. [Normally within 24 hours.

Social Studies Maintenance

Every week I will give the students a Social Studies Maintenance Sheet. These must be completed and turned in on Friday. Although it is divided into days, I do not care if they complete it early. Students who finish it before Friday can turn their work into their folder.

Why Is This Place Famous? Project

Students were given their first big assignment today. It is due August 20. That is next Wednesday. Students should have the directions in their notebook. If anyone has lost their copy, or left it at at school, I will put a copy of the directions on my Edmodo Account.

Sign up for Edmodo

If your child has access to the internet at home I encourage them to sign up for my Edmodo Account. I keep a running calendar and other information to help keep the students organized. I will also share copies of assignments and much more.


Parents can join through their child's account. If you encounter problems let me know.


Their is an app for phones, tablets, Kindles, and Nooks.
