- Social Studies PARCC test- April 24th-May 4th
Students have begun their study of Ancient Greece, which will wrap up by the 24th.
We are learning how Ancient Greece was a culture region made up of city states due to its geography. We will also study how democracy evolved in this part of the world. Of course we will spend time delving into the battles that make this part of the world so popular with many of the students. Ancient Rome will be next after the testing.
In May, our Human Sexuality Unit will begin on May 12th. There will be a Parent Information Night on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 from 5:30pm to 7pm.
