    Dear Parents, 

    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Cajon Park Jr. High.  As your 7th grade student’s History teacher, I would like to share some important information that may help your student succeed in our class this year.


    Instruction will be based on the Santee School District and California State standards for Ancient World History. We will be exploring ancient civilizations such as China, Japan, and Africa.  We will be taking a more detailed look at Europe during the Middle Ages. Grades are based on class work, homework, quizzes, unit tests, activities and projects. You are encouraged to check grades on Power School weekly if not more often.  Your student will  be responsible for writing assignments down in their personal agendas/planners.  Each student will receive an electronic copy of our history book for use at home and in class.   A limited number of books for home will be available for checkout if needed.


     Your student will have a copy of my individual classroom standards and attitudes.  Feel free to contact me directly by phone at 956-2457, or e-mail me at john.beacom@santeesd.net especially if there are additional questions or concerns.


    I am looking forward to working with you and your student this year. Back to School Night on August 28, 5:15-6:30 is a great chance to meet me in person and ask questions about our program.


                                                                Thank you,

                                                                            Mr. J. Beacom
