Social Studies

Monday, students in the 8th grade Social Social Studies class are participating in a Constitution Day presentation by our Congressional Representative, Marsha Blackburn. This meeting will take place via Google Hangouts. Students will be given an opportunity to ask questions about the constitution after the presentation concludes. This is yet another way that our students are experiencing technology in the classroom!
