AP Human Geography

Students should be enrolled in a MyLearning (Canvas) class where suggested summer “start up” items are located.  NOTHING is required, however students should at least look through the online course description so that they know what items are suggested and they can see if there is anything they would like to complete over the summer to lessen their load during the year.  If you are not in the summer class, please contact Mrs. Coss at kcoss@pasco.k12.flus
