    Welcome to Mrs. Furno's Home Page!
     7th grade Social Studies
    Welcome seventh graders and parents to my home page!  We are expecting a wonderful year this year!  I will be teaching the Social Studies for the Explorers  team.  I am originally from Georgia and this will be my twenty-second year of teaching.  I have been married for 16 years and have four children.  I am a graduate of Mercer University in Macon, Georgia.
    I always announce a test at least three days in advance with a study guide. Notebooks are a major test grade each quarter.  Students need a 1-2" 3 ring binder.  Please check the website or planner daily for updated homework assignments. The following is my grading scale:
    30% Tests/SS Notebook
    20% Quizzes
    30% Homework/Classwork
    20%  Projects
    Supplies: 1" or 2" 3- ring binder with dividers, colored pencils, scissors
    Electronic Portfolio:  Students will need a flash drive.  Essays/written projects can be stored on these and used for other classes.  If there is a problem obtaining one, please let me know.  Also, please let me know if you do not have home access to a computer/internet as I will let you use one in class or give a paper copy.
    Communication:  Please feel free to call me at school or email me at mmfurno@wsfcs.k12.nc.us if you have any questions about an assignment.  Homework will be posted daily on the Explorers Team webpage.  Also, I will be posting on Remind 101 so please sign up.
