Mrs. Mags Civics Website - WELCOME TO CIVICS 2016-2017!!
Welcome to Civics!
This course is meant to help students acquire a greater appreciation for the historical changes of the US that led to the development of our Democratic government. All students should be aware of the sacrifices and struggles of our forefathers to attain and maintain the freedoms which we cherish. Thus becomes the purpose of this course, to show my students the responsibilities they have as citizens of the United States and to help them better understand how to properly assert those rights and freedoms in today's world.

** Please always make sure to check your portal. Any grade missing means you did not turn in an assignment on time due to an absence or because you forgot. ALL work CAN be made up. You have ONE week to make up work from an absence for full credit. All other makeup work will be assigned a LATE grade (the longer it takes you to turn it in, the less points you will receive). In my grade book all missing work will count as a ZERO until the assignment is handed in.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns or issues that may arise during the school year!
