Dear Students/Parents/Guardians:
VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  Thursday, Dec. 15th from 5:00-7:00 PM and again on Friday, Dec. 16th from 1:00-3:00 PM, School 5 is having Parent/Teacher Conferences. If your child has not passed Social Studies for the first quarter, please email me so we can set up a mutually convenient time for you to come in to meet with me to discuss how we can best work together to help your child be successful.  Appointments are on a first come basis, but I will try to be as flexible as possible.
As the holidays are upon us, let's try to keep things as stress-free as possible. One of the ways we can do this is by trying to maintain positive and open lines of communication. Please check my PowerSchool account often. Although not all assignments are on PowerSchool, students have daily access to my assignments. I review the upcoming work frequently and my Assignment Calendar is always in the front of my room on the chalkboard ledge.
Some work will be submitted to my email address:, using your school email. Any work or information I want sent to this email address will be designated as a school email submission. All students have to remember they are not using SharePoint for their work submissions.
I will also continue using the Clever IXL Program to reinforce and review the topics covered during the year.
The curriculum for Gr. 7 begins with Pre-History and moves along to the Civil War.
The curriculum for Gr. 8 refreshes your knowledge of the Civil War and moves to present-day History.
History looks at the past and present, to guide our path for the future. Historians and scholars have stated that if we don't know our history we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past, which is not our goal as a country.
History happens every day, and we are a part of it. We will leave our mark on the world, so for those who think it's only about the past, remember we all make history too.
Mrs. Hoblock

  • Grs. 7 & 8 Substitute Assignments

    In the event of my absence students are to do the work assigned by me for that day. The work is expected to be completed as directed and will be graded accordingly. To make things run smoothly in my absence students will be assigned work to include:  work on required Social Studies IXL assignments, complete any definitions assigned, any topic questions assigned, or any work left with the administration or Middle School Team Teacher.   I will indicate what work is to be completed in my absence, students will not choose what they want to work on.
