Welcome to Mr. Holmberg’s Homepage!
Today is Wednesday, January 28, 2015
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 into the new year and closing in on the end of the first semester! This school year is certainly rolling along. We recently held our annual Geography Bee to identify our top geography student here at OMS. Congratulations to Tyler Musk, our third place finisher, Savannah Maycroft, our first runner-up, and to Jaden Parker, who emerged as the 2014 Geography Bee Champion. It was an exciting finale as all ten finalists showed why they earned the right to compete in the final competition. Thank you to all the parents who attended and supported our students.
My 8th grade Social Studies students are now finishing up Unit Three of our curriculum: "Regional and Economic Growth". This unit includes Chapters 8-10 of the textbook and consists mainly of the challenges the United States faced during the presidencies of George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison.
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.
