Welcome Back To School!

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

Welcome back to school!  I trust that you all had a wonderful Spring Break, and are well rested.  I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow! 🙂  It is now time to gear up to return to school and your academics.  There is still much to read, discuss, analyze, write, explore, and discover, before the school year ends in June.

This week, there will be make-up tests for any students who were sick or absent during the SAT-10 tests, which were given before the Spring Break.  Please remind me, on Monday, if you need to take any portion of the SAT-10 tests.  Thank you!

This coming week in literature, my Seventh Graders will start reading Tales of Greek Heroes by Roger Lancelyn.  This is an exciting book of short stories about Greek gods, goddesses, and unbelievable Greek heroes and monsters.   They will also work on finishing their “Children’s Chapter Books.”  They will return to their grammar and punctuation workbooks, and commence a review of cursive writing.  In addition to this, they will commence the viewing of Silas Marner by George Eliot, for Literature on DVD.

This week in Drama Class, my Seventh Graders will rehearse for  A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  They have only one more week of using their scripts during rehearsals.

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Work on finishing your children’s book.
  • Study your lines for A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
  • Study the spelling/vocabulary of Lesson 15 in Wordly Wise, for Thursday, April 27.
  • Complete all the exercises in Lesson 15 of Wordly Wise, for Thursday, April 27.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a grand week ahead.
