Important Message from Mr. Butler:

In response to current national events, PWCS is currently closed. In response, effective on Monday, I will begin working virtually through our Teams page. We will be continuing to make connections on our unit on Westward Expansion (VA SOL Standards USI.6 and USI.7). All work and exams are currently on hold. I will be offering help through Teams and Email until we return to school.

Parents, currently your child has completed (and been assessed) on SOL Standards USI.1 through USI.5 over the course of the year. USI.6 and USI.7 are addressed in Chapter 7 of their textbook (online access instructions are provided in the “Files” tab on Teams). FOR EXPLANATION/DEFINITION OF ALL STANDARDS OF LEARNING PLEASE LOOK UNDER PARENT RESOURCES TAB FOR PACING GUIDE. We will be looking to complete this unit in the near future. 

For your child to review, I have posted a guide to IXL under the Files and Documents link (to the left). This will give you all the work you can complete for review (aim to do 3 per week).

Quarter 4 will be our unit on the Civil War, which stands as SOL Standard USI.8. Your child has had light foreshadowing to this unit, but we have not begun this unit.

Please be aware that NO work is being required at this time. I will work with you any way I can, but be aware that NOTHING is being graded. The best thing you can do at this time is continue to read. Read our textbook, read a book for Language Arts, read a comic book...just READ!!!

Keep an eye on Teams for class assistance. As always, please email me with any questions you may have (student or parent).

I miss you all, and look forward to getting back to Trailer 1 as soon as possible. Please adhere to ALL CDC and VA Department of Heath requests. Stay home, stay safe.

See you soon,
Mr. B.
