Happy St. Francis’ Day!

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

HAPPY ST. FRANCIS’ DAY!  This morning, it was lovely to see so many of our students with their precious pets, at our annual St. Francis Day celebration.  THANK YOU to all the parents who donated to our St. Francis’ Day basket.  I truly appreciate your generosity.  A very special THANK YOU to Michelle Acosta, who put the basket together for the auction today.  The basket is beautiful!  THANK YOU also to the PTG Board and to all the parents who were involved in making this celebration a very special day for all at OMMS.

CONGRATULATIONS to all the students who were elected to sit on the Student Council.  I look forward to working with you.

This week, we will discuss and analyze Beowulf, and the monsters, Grendel and She.  The next writing assignment is to write an outline of Beowulf.  My Seventh Graders have received the guidelines for this homework.  In addition to this, we will commence our poetry unit with the epic poem “The Lady of Shalott” by Alfred Lord Tennyson.  We will also work in the grammar, punctuation, and comprehension workbooks during class time.

Last week, we finished reading Chapter 14 in our history book, which ficused on the Feudal System of the Middle Ages.  This week, we will prepare for the next History Test, on Thursday, October 9.

The following is the homework for this coming week:

  • Spelling/vocabulary of Lesson 4 in Wordly Wise for Thursday.
  • Complete all the exercises in Lesson 4 of Wordly Wise.
  • Complete the CROSSWORD in Lesson 4 of Wordly Wise.
  • Write up a formal outline of Beowulf, for Thursday, October 16.

Children are remarkable for their intelligence and ardor, for their curiosity, their intolerance of shams, and the clarity and ruthlessness of their vision. ~ Aldous Huxley

Have a great weekend and a grand week ahead!
