MIDDLE SCHOOL SOCIAL STUDIES

Welcome back for the 2019-2020 school year at St. Augustin School!  I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with you and your children.  During the course of the upcoming school year, the students will be learning more about many different topics in my class, such as American history, American government, world geography, ancient civilizations, world history, current events, global interdependence, and global crises.  Please use this website for information about class activities, class events and assessments, curricula, and course enrichment.  Please email or call me if you have any questions about Social Studies class.  I know we will have a fantastic year!
