Middle Ages Unit Survey

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen, today we're going to start to study a period in history known as the Renaissance.  Before we begin, I'm hoping to take care of some housecleaning.  Would you please check your email, powerschool grades and missing assignments?  I'd like to have these updated as soon as possible.  

The last thing I would like you to do, would be to take a survey to help Mrs. Meserve and I understand your thoughts.  Thank you!!
