STUDENTS & PARENTS -

Welcome to the new way of learning since our spring break 2020! We are all in this together and will manage through this difficult time. I'm always an email away or you can contact me through School Status.

We are moving on to T4 Monday, April 6th, 2020. Please find your assignments for my classes below. I will update each Sunday for the upcoming week. You will not need any textbooks for my courses.

PARENTS- please know that your child has to opportunity to drop my class if they do not need it for graduation. They can take it next year (as long as they're not a senior now.) If you have questions, please contact your child's counselor by email.

Please know that we ALL miss ALL our students! Stay well and stay safe! :-)

Each week, you will search the internet (or you can look through magazines/newspapers at home) to find a current article (within the last 5 years) to summarize about the weekly topic.

About the Teacher:

My name is Donna Fulp, and I'm a native of Southaven, MS.  I'm 46 years old, and this is my 23rd year teaching in Desoto County.  I have two children, a 16 year old son and a 19 year old daughter.  I've been married to my husband, Jimmy, since 1996. We attend City Church for Olive Branch.

I graduated high school from Southaven High in 1991, received my Bachelors degree in 1997 from the University of Memphis, and then earned my Masters in 2003 from the University of Mississippi. I just received my Specialist degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University.

My hobbies include spending time with my family as much as possible, with a healthy portion of extracurricular activities for the kids, and then of course, my "friend" time.
