MS Rel/Soc Studies

Middle School Religion & Social Studies

Hello and welcome to the 2019-2020 academic school year! I’m very happy to begin my fifth year as the Middle School Religion and Social Studies Teacher at Holy Family Catholic School.

1) Please feel free to check the resources section for some useful links and occasional extra study help. For now, I will be emailing PowerPoints directly rather than posting on here.

2) I will be posting study guides full of definitions for important key terms on Quizlet. Go to to view them at any time before immediately upcoming quizzes and tests.

3) Remember that the weekly homework and dates for quizzes and tests is on this page. Email me at any time ( and I will get back to you ASAP to answer any questions you might have.

Take care and God bless.
