Welcome Back To School!

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter celebration, and that you are enjoying the last days of our Spring Break.  Time is marching forward quickly, and my Seventh Graders still have much to learn, explore, discuss, and finish, during the next nine weeks of school.

Jenna Bell, great job on your participation in our parish’s Multicultural Stations of the Cross, on Friday, March 27.

This coming week in Literature, we will commence reading The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, and perfect the haughty accent of the English aristocracy.  In addition to this, I will distribute the scripts for A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, in preparation for their play performance, on Monday, June 1.  I hope to cast most of the play by the end of this week, if possible.  Mid-week, my Seventh Graders will also return to cursive workbooks, in order to perfect their cursive writing skills.  Some students still have not turned in the reaction paper about The Trojan War, which was due on March 12.  To those students, please submit your papers on Monday, April 13.

I am happy to report that most of the Seventh Graders scored A+’s/A’s on the two History Tests before the Spring Break.  Well done!  This week in history, my Seventh Graders will commence learning about Greek and Roman history.  In addition to this, they will watch short documentaries about the Greeks and the Romans.


The Interim Reports will be mailed from the office on Thursday, April 16.

The following is the homework for this coming week

  • Study for the Literary Terms Test on Thursday, April 16.
  • Rewrites of The Trojan War papers will be due on Thursday, April 16.
  • Spelling test of Lesson 15 in Wordly Wise will resume on Thursday, April 23.
  • Complete all the exercises in Lesson 15 of Wordly Wise for Thursday, April 23.

Follow your honest convictions, and stay strong. ~ William Thackeray

Enjoy the rest of your Spring Break, and have a GRAND week ahead.
