Please talk with your child about the History Day Program. I will be working with Mrs. Fox and Mr. Gouge's 8th grade classes in large group sessions on Thursdays to help your child create a quality project. Mrs. Morris, 7th grade social studies teacher will be working with 7th grade students on History Day Projects. I will keep in contact with her to discuss the needs of my 7th grade students who are participating in this endeavor.
