World History II Update

Week of December 8-12, 2014

Great week!

Last week students finished their curriculum for World History II. Their final unit test was last Friday. Grades are updated on parent portal - please check it when you get a chance.


Today we started SOL review because their SOL test is Monday, 12/15. The SOL review packet (that students received one month ago) is due on Friday, 12/12. Every night this week, I've asked students to READ a few pages of SOL review material. In class this week, we will do SOL review every day.
