7th Grade

November 16, 2020

Dear 7th graders:

I am impressed with the hard work and fabulous learning that is happening in 7th grade. Keep up the great work. I look forward to meeting with all parents on Zoom next week. If you need to change your conference time, please let me know.

Even though students have time off due to conferences next week, I still expect them to do school work. This week’s plan has assignments that are due after Thanksgiving. There is a lot of work; 7th graders should expect to work at least three hours every day that they are not physically at school (except Thanksgiving and weekends). Please continue your routine of working next week.

WEEK OF:November 16-20 – plus work for Nov. 23-25
