Students in Government classes assessed results from Midterm elections and compared their voting with the state results. Students are also participating in a variety of Google Classroom assignments that get them using technology to enhance learning.

US History classes went over results of their second Common Assessment. They were assessed on their ability to write with evidence. They are becoming very good writers of history, by coming up with original thesis statements and proving them with historical evidence.
