• Welcome to Mrs. Welch's 8th Grade Social Studies Class!

    I am Ms. Welch. I teach and LOVE 8th grade Georgia Studies!
    In this class, we cover everything about the GREAT State of Georgia!
    Including geography, history, government and economics specific to Georgia.
    This year is starting off a little bit different than usual. I hope the list of information below can be resourceful for you.

    6. Canvas is an awesome resource to use as we progress in the school year. Ms. Welch's Canvas page includes a weekly agenda of activities, anchor charts (visual aids), links to assignments, documents and PowerPoints, and other resources that will help students and parents stay informed and on track.
    Canvas has an app and website that students are able to login to.
    Parents are also able to access Canvas through the parent access login. 
    7. General contact information is provided in the signature below should you have questions throughout the year.
