Spirit Week!

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

I trust that you are all safe and sound from the fires, and that none of you had to be evacuated from your homes.  I hope that you enjoyed your wee break from school, and are ready to return to your work routine on Monday.  We still have much to accomplish before the end of the school year.

THANK YOU to all the parents who showered us with delicious goodies and gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week.  I am truly thankful to you for  your kind, thoughtful, and generous hearts.  We, teachers at O.M.M.S., are very lucky to have such great parents at our school!

This week in literature, I will continue to read aloud Hamlet by William Shakespeare, Then, we will discuss the themes, characterization, and plot of the play.  In addition to this, the Seventh Graders will prepare for the Literary Terms Test, which will be given on Wednesday, May 21.   They will also continue to work in their comprehension, grammar, and punctuation workbooks.  They will spend thirty minutes per day rehearsing for A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare.

Most of the Seventh Graders scored  high on the History Test last Wednesday.  Well done, Seventh Graders!  They have now completed their history course for this year.  Hence, during history class, they will watch historical documentaries, to bring to life the history which they have studied this past school year.


Spirit Day will take place as planned on Friday, May 23.  All parents are welcome to attend this exciting and fun event.

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Study for the Literary Terms Test (page 16), on Wednesday, May 21.
  • Study for the review spelling test of Lesson 8 in Wordly Wise for Thursday.
  • Complete four pages in Rules of the Game for Thursday.
  • Study your lines for A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
