Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

I hope you all will enjoy your day off school, in honor of Martin Luther King, Junior.  He was a remarkable man, who did much for Civil Rights and Liberties, in this great country.

CONGRATULATIONS to Anna Stephens on being our Seventh Grade “Student of the Month.”  Well done, Anna!  Keep up the great work! 🙂

Last week in literature, my Seventh Graders started to read the play The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.  They read in haughty, aristocratic British accents, so we had a lot of fun. In addition to this, they reviewed for their Final, and they worked on their grammar workbooks.  They also watched the next installment of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, which they are enjoying immensely.

This week in literature, my Seventh Graders will continue to read The Importance of Being Earnest.  They will start writing and designing magazines.  They will return to their study of poetry and read “The Charge of the Light Brigade” by Alfred Lord Tennyson.  In addition to this, they will watch the final chapter of To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Then, they will review for their Final Examinations.

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Work on your Magazines.  No Wordly Wise homework, this week!
  • Study for your Final Examinations.


  • Celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr., on Monday, January 15.  No school!
  • Finals will be given from January 24 to January 26.
  • The Spelling Bee will be given during Finals Week.
  • Field Trip to San Diego Zoo, on Friday, January 26.
  • E.C.D.S. will host an Open House on Sunday, January 28, from 1:00p.m. to 4:00p.m.  We hope that you will attend.

The time is always right to do what is right. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Enjoy your weekend and have a grand week ahead.
