Mr. Poynter

Welcome to 7th grade U.S. History with Mr. Poynter. This year students will learn everything from reconstruction in 1865 all the way up to modern day. If there are ever any questions or concerns I am always available through email and I will be reaching out to parents throughout the year to keep you updated on what we will be doing. If you ever need information about what's going on in the class, then be sure to check out my Student Messenger. I will be updating that with all the information I can, usually on Sundays before the week.
