Distance Learning Calendar for Week of 5/18
Google Classroom Code: b5pv3mt
Parents, if you would like to be added to google classroom so you can monitor your students progress, please email me with your preferred email. All notifications will go to that email address.
There are two ways to reach me with questions. You can email me any questions you have, at any time, and I will respond as soon as possible. I will also hold “office hours” on Tue & Thur from 11am to 12noon. At that time, you can post a question to my US History Office Hours google classroom. The code is b5pv3mt. Feel free to post questions, or respond to other student’s questions at any time, but know that I will be online between 11am and 12noon, on Tue/Thur, if you need me. ALL communication should be through your school email. No personal emails please.
Welcome to US History 8 at Pacific Trails Middle School. This page will be your resource for everything we do in the class.

You will also find resources used in class, homework and project reminders, assignment instructions, and study guides. Please make sure you're checking this website regularly for updates. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
