Mr. Paul Halligan5th, 6th and 7th Grade Social Studies Teacher
Parents, students, and others who have come here,
Welcome back to Park Avenue School and in-class learning. I am extremely excited about starting the year, as I am sure your children are also.
As to my class website:
Social Studies and History are a passion of mine. I hope
your children will learn to love them as much as I do.
I plan on having the students learn about the world around them as well as the country they live in. Geography and current events will be covered in depth. Besides learning historical and current event topics, there will be an emphasis on vocabulary and writing.
Just a few things, as parents you should note. I almost always have homework. It may only be reading, but there will usually always be something to complete. If your child tells you continuously that they have no homework in my class, please feel free to reach out to me by Email or phone. I suggest you check my homework page, or your student's Google Classroom page, which is where I have all assignments posted and which I try to keep updated on a daily basis. To keep an eye on your child's grades, you should make sure you are signed up to the Parent Portal in our office. Through the portal you will be able to see your student's grade in all of their subjects. Hopefully, this keeps you up to date on any problems they may be having in my class.
If you have any questions or suggestions about the site
or about how your child is doing, please E-mail me, contact me through Class Dojo, or as
always, come into Park Avenue to chat anytime.
Yours in education,
