    Welcome to 8th Grade Georgia History. I am very pleased to be a part of the ECMS Team!
     
    We use the Remind system in Georgia History to update parents and students regarding important dates and events:
    • 2nd Period Georgia History:
      • rmd.at/jsb1785 and follow directions. If you don't have a smartphone, get text notifications by texting the message @jsb1785 to the number 81010.

    Testing for Georgia History will be either on either Wednesdays or Fridays. If there are exceptions to this, we will be sure to give your student plenty of notice.
     
    Tutoring is available on Monday and Wednesday, 11:38-12:05. To be tutored, students must fill out a tutoring form in advance and provide written parent permission before attending.  Students must see me for the tutoring form.
     
    If your child is absent, please make sure they ask for their missing work when they return to school. For each excused absence they will have one class day to complete their missing work. If they are out because of unexcused absences they'll be responsible to complete their work (or test) upon return to school.
     
    To be prepared each day for class students must have:

    Writing materials: Pen OR pencil, Notebook paper, Three Ring Binder 

    I love what I do, and hope that your student achieves great things this school year, as they learn to love history. I am here to serve them and you, so please do not hesitate to let me know how I can make this school year a great one for your family.
