High School (8th-12th Grades)


Social Studies

Welcome to Summer School!


Summer school begins June 22, 2020 and ends July 30, 2020. It takes place Monday through Thursday and there are no classes on Fridays for the summer. Social Studies will continue with the same schedule meeting twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays. Summer school will continue to be taught remotely with the same format. Students will have a class assignment through Google Slides and an additional "Homework" assignment as well. Everything you need for High School Social Studies will be located on this page. Additional helpful resources can be found on the "Resources" link on the left hand side of this screen.  Be sure to complete in-class assignments and turn in your homework each week by Thursday evening. We look forward to working with you virtually this summer.
