Dear 7th grade:
It made me so happy to have you all together last week.
We have conferences in a couple weeks. I would love to meet with each parent to communicate about your child’s progress; however, I know that you are busy so I am leaving this up to you. If you would like to meet in person or via Zoom in the next couple weeks, please let me know. I can meet before or after school, or during lunch (12:10-12:50).
This week we have lots planned. In writing, we will continue our laser focus on the quality of a sentences by writing a paragraph about our favorite season. This is an easy topic, so we can focus our energy on verb choice and figurative language. In grammar, we will continue our work with apostrophes and possessives, with a new emphasis on indefinite pronouns. In social studies, we will transition from learning about culture and prejudice to our study of the Holocaust. Our reading this week will be research for our Holocaust unit.
Homework this week and this weekend is THE CULTURAL FAIR.
Here is the schedule for bringing projects to school.
|March 8||March 9||March 10||March 15||March 16||March 17|
Please bring diapers or support project Rice Bowl, our Lenten Service Projects.
This is the last week of the trimester. All missing work must be turned in by Thursday afternoon.
It was such a joy to have all the 7th graders in for math and religion. I am looking forward to spending every day with all of them. This week for religion, we are focusing on Jesus as the substantial image of God. We will be reminded that Jesus is true man and true God. Students will review the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. They will end the week with a reflection on the Random Acts of Kindness they performed this last trimester. Speaking of Random Acts of Kindness, service logs are due. The final day I will accept them for a grade this trimester is Monday, February 22.
This week in 7th science we are photosynthesis and energy in ecosystems. On Monday we will work on pp. 29-36, due Wednesday. On Tuesday we will have a lab. Due Thursday are pp. 37-41. Due next Monday are pp. 43-46.
