**The Middle East map test is at the beginning of October. Students should read for a book review that will be due at the end of October.
Please contact me if you have questions or concerns. It is a long time until conferences, and I am happy to meet with you before then if you would like.
Hi 7th Grade Parents,
Although I am sad to have lost your children as 6th graders this year, at least I still have them for science!
We have a new science curriculum this year. We will be studying biology, with a focus on cells at the start of the year. We have “disposable” books, meaning your child will be doing most of their work directly in the book.
Due Tuesday are questions 1-5 on pp. 3-7. Due Wednesday are questions 7-9 on pp. 8-9. We will also have a lab on Wednesday and Thursday that will be due next Monday.
Welcome back to another wonderful school year! I am excited to continue on this journey of faith with your child. Students have received their “Service Logs” for the first trimester. They have put their religion binder together and are ready to learn. The focus for seventh grade religion is Jesus. Father Moore will be visiting with the seventh graders most Tuesday mornings. I am excited to have him support our religion curriculum.
This year our school theme is “Friendship.” This theme reflects our relationship with one another as well as with Jesus. We know this theme is important because since the beginning of creation God has called us to be in relationship. One very important relationship is friendship.
The first assignment for the seventh graders is to find a meaningful, powerful, personal quote about friendship. They are to write it out on a piece of paper and then illustrate the paper. This will be the cover of your child’s religion binder. This is due on Thursday.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to meet with you.
