5th - 8th Grade Social Studies

  • Social Studies is the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities in order to promote civic competence, patriotism, and the values of our American heritage.  A well-articulated K-8 Social Studies program should include a coordinated, systematic study of civics, U.S. and World History, economics, geography, and cultures of the past and present.

    Our vision as educators is to provide solid content, student-centered instructional methods, and varied assessment.  This will include research-based strategies and teacher-designed classroom activities fostering critical thinking. 

    Our democratic society is one of continuity and change, diversity and commonality, adversity and opportunity.  Such a society needs knowledgeable, thoughtful, and ethical participation by its citizens in an effort to promote the common good and increase the general welfare of its citizens.
