The document below is a class syllabus for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade social studies. Your student will recieve one of these on the first day of school.

Welcome to Social Studies!

I'm Ms. Mascolino and I'm so excited to work with your students in my social studies classroom!

Social Studies is such an important cornerstone in education. It is my job to help your student learn, understand, and relate school content to the world we live in today; to make their learning both relevant and meaningful.

I have very high yet simple classroom expectations. To put it briefly, I expect my students to always be respectful, responsible, and safe; The Raider Way. During the first few days of school I plan to work with students to create a list of classroom expectations that students and I collaborate on together as a way for them to hold themselves accountable in addition to myself holding them accountable. I value the importance of student/teacher collaboration and value the input of each and every one of my students which is why I choose to have students help create the classroom expectations. I also value the importance of guardian/teacher collaboration. It is my goal to have you just as up to date as your student on things going on in class as well as to keep you updated on your student’s progress in my class.

Once school begins you will be able to find weekly newsletters here on my website. Please, if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or would just like to have a conversation do not hesitate to reach out to me! Again I look forward to working with you and your student this year—Go Raiders!
