WELCOME BACK to Addams Middle School and to starting 7th grade! I hope you are as excited about this new year as am I

Also, CONGRATULATIONS on joining Team USC! You are joining the BEST TEAM AT ADDAMS MIDDLE SCHOOL and hope you look forward to this great year!

Today in World History, you learned where your seat will be as we start this school year. There will be changes as the year goes on.


Also, today you received your USC Handbook Planner 2019-20. In this planner, you have a syllabus for each of your core classes. You also have information about other parts of learning this year including our bell schedule, a cover letter, Content Enrichment Permission slip, Planner Pages, etc. You are expected to have this planner with you each day at school for the next few weeks. Be sure to read all of the documents. You will keep the syllabi and other documents. You need only return with parent signature the 1/2-sheet that says you and your parents have read all of the enclosed documents. This 1/2 sheet is due back by Thursday, Sept. 5, 2019.


Again, please be sure to bring your USC Handbook Planner 2019-20 with you to each class for the next few weeks. And, the 1/2-sheet paper is due back with parent signature by Thursday, Sept. 5, 2019.
