Junior High WV History Class -- Can you help?

Dear Families of Junior High students,

It is my pleasure to delve into West Virginia History with your kids and mine
this year!  I have learned a few things about my adopted state, and I will know a whole lot more when we finish this course.  We all will!

Here's how I could use some help:  Do you or yours have any stories about life in West Virginia that could be shared with the students?  Farming, coal mining, growing up stories that may be in your family history may seem commonplace to you but would really enhance our class time.  Please consider coming in to share anything West Virginian with this class!

Another way to help: please send in the research report your child did last year in writing class.  I would like to have these shared aloud with the class. 

Lastly, on Friday September 7, Coal Country Mini-Golf is open at 3 pm and is
giving us $1 off admission to play after our THESIS day.  If you have not played here, you'll like that every hole is constructed from coal mining equipment! This will be a fun way to kick off our class! 

Liz DeRoos, for THESIS
