Mr. Andresen's 7th Grade Social Studies
I'm Mr. Andresen and I teach seventh grade Social Studies. I have taught in the Apache Junction School District for 20 years now and I'm still loving it. This is my 9th year at CCJH and I'm really excited about continuing to teach, using the "One to One" system of students, teachers, and parents all using technology to prepare students to be college ready when they graduate. Our method of instruction will again this year be based on the "Beyond Textbooks" program.

** With the "runny nose" season approaching, I would like to ask for parents to donate a box of tissues such as Kleenex. The school district no longer is able to provide them. Thank You.
I believe that communication with parents and guardians is very important. I try to answer e-mails within an hour or two of receiving them.
Please check "Classroom News" sub-pages for weekly planning information.
Lets have a great 2018-2019 school year!

Grades are based on a cumulative point total. Points are assigned to quizzes, tests, and classwork. The percentage of points obtained from the total will represent the quarter grade.
Absence Policy: If a student is absent, he/she will have the same number of days to
make up any work missed equal to the number of days that were missed. For example, if
a student misses two days of school, he/she will have two days after their return to
complete any assignments. Some assignments, due to their nature, may not be able to be
made up. In this event, an alternate assignment may be given.
