Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

THANK YOU to all our parents who accompanied us on our walk to the Canine Companions, and who drove for the field trip to the The Runyon Museum, last Monday.  I truly appreciate your time and participation.  Our students thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits and the hands-on activity.  Congratulations to all our students for being excellent role models.  Well done! I am so proud of you!  THANK YOU to Miss Lida for organizing this great field trip.  THANK YOU to Michelle Acosta for the great collage of photos of the field trip, that you gave to each of our Middle School teachers.  You are a GEM!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR O.M.M.S. UNDEFEATED VOLLEYBALL JUNIOR VARSITY AND VARSITY TEAMS, and to their coaches, DENISE MARQUEZ and JUD FIDELLOW, and their team moms, NICKI NUGENT, and MICHELLE ACOSTA!  WOW!  GO KINGS!  GO CHAMPIONS!  WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!  THANK YOU!

This week in literature, the Seventh Graders commenced their reading of Inside the Walls of Troy by Clemence McLaren, and they appear to be enjoying it.  In addition to this, they are making good progress in their classroom workbooks.  After the Thanksgiving break, they will return to their study of Literary Terms, and to the study of the format for writing a screenplay.  Last Thursday, we started to watch the DVD To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, which is a great study of camera angles, in portraying a screenplay.

The Seventh Graders are doing an excellent job on their weekly spelling and vocabulary test, and on the Wordly Wise homework.  I am very pleased with their progress and their high grade scores.  Keep up the great work, Seventh Graders!

This week in history, we will prepare for the History Test of Chapter 16, which will take place on Thursday, December 11.   This will be the last History Test before the Christmas break.  After Thanksgiving, the next chapter in history will focus on The Renaissance.

Reminder: There is no Wordly Wise homework for Thanksgiving week!  

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.  ~ John F. Kennedy

Dear Parents, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the gift of your children every day.  They bring joy to my world, and they are a credit to you.  I truly love them!  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  ENJOY!  RELAX!  HAVE FUN!

Cheers,

Miss Susan
