Welcome to HCMS! This year in social studies we will be covering world geography and cultures. Students will be supplied with a folder, composition book, paper, pencil, and agenda. We have new textbooks that will remain in the room unless individual students check them out. Students should be writing in their agendas everyday, so please check that for homework and class updates. I will be updating my blog with weekly topics, tests, and projects to help keep you informed of what is happening in social studies. Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have any questions this year!
