Welcome back everyone! I hope everyone had a fantastic summer break! Whether you hit the beach, traveled the country or visited another one, or just spent most of your days reading at the pool like me, I hope you enjoyed your time off! It's that time of year again where we almost ready for school and we're gearing up. I'm getting my classroom and materials ready for your return and I can't wait to meet y'all in a couple weeks!  During our first week, we'll be reviewing our classroom expectations, talking briefly about our classroom unit overviews, and reviewing everyone's favorite thing, the Code of Behavior! Enjoy your last few days of summer, and I'll see you soon!

This week the students will be learning the difference between civil and criminal court cases! We look at the details of each and what they entail. We have a quiz on Friday to wrap up the differences, and then we will be taking it a slow easy pace, because of the Writing SOL. Students should be continued to work towards their PIP's if needed, and seeing me to set up times. My lacrosse season is in full swing, so my time after school is limited. As always, here to help! -Mr. Evans

Welcome back after break! I knew we missed a few posts, but I just got caught up in the business of winter break, and the chaos of returning from it! The classes have settled back in to their normal routines and we're back to normal. This week we are learning about the Legislative branch and how a bill becomes a law. The class will be able to describe the bill process and they will get to come up with their own ideas for laws. Finally we will have a quiz on Friday January 13th on the legislative branch and the bill process. Remember we have a three day weekend coming up as we are closed for MLK day on the 16th. Also remember the semester is coming to a close on January 27th! As always, a pleasure! -Mr. Evans
