• Back To School Night Link

      Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.  6th grade students will begin this year discussing traits of early civilizations.  We will then begin to talk about different civilizations such as the ancient Sumerians, Babylonians, Greeks and Egyptians and Romans. Students will be issued textbooks at the start of the year. Due to Covid 19, students WILL be required to bring their textbooks to class on a daily basis.  Students may wish to work on any assignment during FLEX periods.  Please encourage your student to keep the book covered even though it is at home to minimize and damage that may occur to the book.
      8th grade will beging the year by discussing the United States Constitution. Other concepts covered this year will include Washington's presidency, the Jefferson Era, the Industrial Revolution,the Age of Jackson, the idea of Manifest Destiny and the Civil War.  Eighth grade students will also receive their textbooks at the beginning of the year.  Again due to Covid 19,  they WILL need to bring the textbook to class each day as I do not have enough copies to issue a classroom set and a set for home.
    ALL students were issued a planner at the start of the year.  Please check the planner each night to make sure your student is filling out work for each class on a daily basis. Parents and students may also check my Google Classroom site daily for assigned work, assessement dates, potential project dates and announcements.
    As always, if you have any questions, please free to call the school at 717-692-2108 or email me at kirkwoodn@mlbgsd.k12.pa.us.  I will get back to you with an anwser as soon as I possibly can.  I have also attached a link to the new Canvas pages the school will slowly be navigating to over the next year. 
    Together we can help your child have a great year!
