A.P. U.S. Government & Politics

From your teacher....

As your summer assignment, I am asking that you complete a packet on the Constitution and that you complete the regular activities associated with a chapter from my textbook. I have included in this envelope a copy of the worksheets that must be completed. All three assignments are to be pledged*. This means you may not receive or give help on this assignment. All work must be turned in by the due dates listed. No late work will be accepted. You may turn the assignments into my mailbox at NKHS or scan and email the assignments to me. Any work brought to the school must be delivered before 3pm Monday through Thursday (The school is closed on Fridays). Please email me when you drop work off at the school. You may contact me to turn in work or ask questions at lchisenhall@nkcps.k12.va.us. I will check this email address frequently. Again contact me with all questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you next year.

Mrs. Chisenhall
