I would ask that students bring the required supplies to Social Studies class every day: a three ring binder, a single subject notebook, a folder, a pen(cil), and of course their Agenda.
Students will be assigned a textbook this week. This textbook needs to go home and stay home for the upcoming school year. Books will need to be returned in June. Books will be used for vocabulary activities as well as other homework assignments throughout the year. An on line verson of the book is available with a code.

Have Questions?? Want Extra Help??
Mrs. Blanchet will be available for extra help during lunch and after school, schedule permitting, on Tuesdays or Thursdays. Students need to let Mrs. Blanchet know if they are in need of extra assistance during lunch so that she can provide them a lunch pass.
