Mr. Hartung

Welcome to Mr. Hartung’s update - November 11, 2018

Happy Veteran’s Day to all. Your 8th graders will be talking in class on Tuesday about this holiday and about the contribution and sacrifice of service persons everywhere.

7th Grade -  On Tuesday we have special guests in the classroom as a part of a special program to expose students to the work that anthropologists do. I am looking forward to their perspective and contribution on the 13th. In class, we have looked at the geography of Africa and will be investigating some of the trading empires of the Middle Ages and aspects of everyday life during this time for people in Africa as we move towards Thanksgiving.

8th Grade - We continue to examine mass incarceration and will look at the Bill of Rights this week as well…we are looking at some topics that tie into individual rights and some of the subject matter could be upsetting for some students. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me. I am working very hard to get students to think about these issues and form their own opinions as a part of learning about government documents and systems.

As always, if you have questions or concerns please feel free to send an email, give me a call, or stop by and see me.

Best!,
Mr. Hartung
