Welcome to Mr. Holmberg’s Homepage!
Today is Friday, October 31, 2014
Thank you for visiting my homepage and welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Oakridge Middle School!
Wow! I find it hard to believe that we're already through our first marking period! This school year is certainly rolling along. Information about fall parent / teacher conferences will be sent home with students within the next week. I look forward to meeting the parents and discussing their student's progress in my class.
My 8th grade Social Studies students are just completing Unit Two of our curriculum: "Challenges to An Emerging Nation". This unit covered the creation of a new government after the Revolutionary War and the United States gaining independence from Britain. We've discussed the first attempt at a new government - the Articles of Confederation - as well as the Constitutional Convention and the ideas that were brought forward and debated during that meeting. Finally, we examined the contents of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Please refer to this page often throughout the school year, as I use it as a means to communicate to both parents and students about both important information and the topics and we'll be covering in my 8th grade Social Studies classes.
As always, please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.
