Welcome to Mr. Holmberg’s Homepage!

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 halfway through the fourth and final marking period of the school year. It seems like every year goes by more quickly than the one before! My 8th grade Social Studies students are now working on Unit 6 of our curriculum: "The Civil War". Students will be comparing the advantages and strategies of both sides, examining some of the key individuals in the war, studying some of the major battles and why they were significant, and looking at how new technologies changed the future of warfare and gave the advantage to the North in the latter years of the war.
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.
