Dear parents and students: I am Mr. Wolter and I teach World History, U.S. History and American Government/Economics in E-12.  It is my goal to provide rigorous content driven lessons and activities for students each day to improve their skills in these three core subjects areas. Look for the Parent Portal link in Infinite Campus. From there you can access my grade book and see your student's current progress this marking period. If you have any questions please email me at or call HHS at extension 61248.
