Happy Martin Luther King’s Day!

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

I hope that you all will enjoy this three-day weekend in honor of the great Martin Luther King Jr.

This week in literature, the Seventh Graders will continue to read Inside the Walls of Troy by Clemenc McLaren.  In addition to this, they will study Literary Terms. This past week, they finished watching To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.  They were horrified when Tom Robinson was found guilty for a crime that he did not commit.  In addition to this, the Seventh Graders will work in their classroom workbooks.

I am very disappointed to report that only 50% of the class scored A+’s, A’S, and B+’s on the History Test last Thursday.  The other 50% of the class scored D+’s, D’s, and F’s.  This is unacceptable!  Please limit your child’s use of iPhones and other gadgets to one hour on school nights, as they are interfering with their education and studies.  Thank you!  This week in history, the Seventh Graders will finish reading Chapter 18 of their history book, which concentrates on the Counter-Reformation.

The homework for this coming week is as follows:

  • Spelling/vocabulary test of Lesson 10 in Wordly Wise for Thursday.
  • Complete all the exercises in Lesson 10 of Wordly Wise.
  • The “Design a Magazine” project is due on Friday, January 23.


1. The Progress Reports will be mailed from the school office on Friday, January 23.

2. Catholic Schools’ Week begins on Sunday, January 25, with Mass at 10:00 a.m. in the Serra Center.  We hope that you will join us for the celebration.  We would like our students to wear their Mass uniforms.  Thank you!

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance, and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence. ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Have fun this weekend and have a grand week ahead.
