Welcome Back!

Welcome to another year here at Stanton Middle School! 

This will be your 8th grade U.S. History Blog. I am in the process of changing my Blog over to a new venue, but it will take a little while, so for now you can use this site for any academic needs you may have. If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail or contact me through Remind 101. I hope we have a great year, and learn a little social studies in the process 😉 Below are the links to sign up for Remind 101. Make sure you choose the correct class period!

Welcome Back to SCHOOL…Woo-ha-ha-ha!!

Hello 7th and 8th Grade History Students!

This is the blog that you can access the online book, test/assignment info and updates, fun educational websites and even access assignments if you “forget them at home!” I am looking forward to teaching you and learning from you as well this year. Let’s have a great year everyone!!

Civil War Test

Hello all! Today is the Civil War Test that is 103 points. There will be no test fixes for this test…the grade you get is the final one!

I also wanted to make sure everyone knew that we will be turning in our books on Monday May 23rd. Make sure you take your cover off before turning in your book. The number you wrote in the beginning of the year must match the book you turn in to me!

For the last few days on class we will be watching the movie Lincoln that centers on the 13th amendment (officially ends slavery). There will be a packet with questions that goes along with the movie.

I will be officially closing my grades on Friday so make sure all late work is in! Let’s finish the year strong everyone!
