AGENDA MONDAYS EXPLAINED!

For social studies this year, we will be filling out agendas at the beginning of each week with what we are planning on covering in class each day.  This is not necessarily homework but more of a guide for the week.  If your child works hard in class, they should be able to complete all work in class.  Studying for tests is the only real 'at home' task I will ask them to do.  Homework, and missing assignment notes will be added to agendas as needed.  

Welcome to the 2017 - 2018 SeaHawks Team!!!
