12/6  18-2 quiz was due today, 12/6.  I did not receive all of them.  8-2 only:  Western U.S. Map is due Monday, 12/10.   Current events is due next Tuesday, December 11 for assigned students. The topic is "World." Assigned students are to find an article about an event that recently took place somewhere around the world but outside of the United States that is NOT sports related, NOT entertainment related, and NOT too violent in nature. Please remember to write in complete sentences using blue or black ink.     Please have a D.E.A.R. book with you at all times.  I am going to check and points will be deducted if you do not have a book!
This day in history  December 6, 1884: In Washington, D.C., workers place a nine-inch aluminum pyramid atop a tower of white marble, completing the construction of an impressive monument to the city’s namesake and the nation’s first president, George Washington. As early as 1783, the infant U.S. Congress decided that a statue of George Washington, the great Revolutionary War general, should be placed near the site of the new Congressional building, wherever it might be. After then-President Washington asked him to lay out a new federal capital on the Potomac River in 1791, architect Pierre L’Enfant left a place for the statue at the western end of the sweeping National Mall (near the monument’s present location).
