Welcome Back - We Missed You!!!

All of us at Clara B Ford miss you so much and want to welcome you back to our new remote learning classroom. Here at CBF we have been busy creating a video to show all of our students how much we care. Videos can be found by going to the main Remote Learning page, then looking for "Welcome Back: We Missed You!" on the left hand side of the screen. 

We are SO excited to start learning with all of you. Everything you need for High School Social Studies will be located on this page.  Social Studies classes will take place on Monday and Wednesday of every week.  Every Monday and Wednesday you will have an 'Assignment' to work in while in the computer lab and an additional "Homework" assignment as well.  Additional helpful resources can be found on the "Resources" link on the left hand side of this screen. Be sure to complete in-class activities (you will find directions in the PowerPoints) and turn in your homework each week by Thursday evening. We look forward to working with you virtually this quarter. 

Let's get started!
