Social Studies
Assigned By: Gillingham, Christina
First class today! While it was warm and a little humid, I think this is going to be a great year for socials.
Students will need a RED binder and some loose leaf or an exercise. Handouts and activities will be three hole punched for ease of storage and organization.
Please bring your binder and textbook to each class period.

See you tomorrow :o)
