Hello Freshmen!

Hello and welome to our Freshman World History page.  I’m going to post the powerpoints and notes for each section here, at or near the end of each chapter so you can get everything you missed.  You are responsible for coming here and getting what ever you need.

There will also be copies of the homework and worksheets on here, so you can get anything you’ve lost. 

I’m looking forward to a great year with all of you!
