• Welcome to Mrs. Connolly's US History class.  This year students will be studying Colonial America-the Civil War.  My goal is to create a classroom of independent critical thinkers.  Throughout the school year students will participate in debates/discussion and argumentative writing assignments to help develop independent thought.  We are a community and my goal is to help students learn from each other.  Please come to class each day with a binder, positive attitude and an open mind.

I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year!

Mrs. Connolly
