Mr. Dennis Draughon

 For any of our rising 8th graders attending Smithfield Middle School for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year, I hope you had a wonderful summer break! I look forward to meeting you at 8th Grade Orientation/Open House here at Smithfield Middle School on Thursday evening, August 19th, from 5 to 7 PM, and during the first week of the new school year, which starts Monday, August 23rd!

This will be my eleventh year teaching at Smithfield Middle School. Once again I will be teaching 8th grade social studies, where we will be learning about the development and history of The United States and North Carolina, from the time before European colonization up to the present day. For the first 8 weeks we will begin by learning about how to read maps, the regions of NC, Pre-Contact indigenous cultures in the US and NC, early English colonies from Roanoke to Plymouth, and how early settlers moved into and prospered in the various regions of our great state!
