7th Grade – Block

May/June Newsletter

Finishing the Year Strong
As the school year winds down and we finish all of the testing, it is important to remember that we still have much to do.  The Seventh Graders have worked hard this year.  They have learned more about what it means to be a middle school student.  It is important that the students stay diligent in their learning even though it feels like they can be done. They still have a lot of topics left to cover this year and they need to keep working hard as they have been all year.

Thank You
It has been my pleasure to have all of you in my class this year.  I have been able to watch all of you grow from the beginning of the year until now.  You have all grown as young men and women.  Thank you for allowing me to be your teacher and to make this year a great year.

I hope all of you have a wonderful summer and find it relaxing.  I look forward to seeing all of you next year!

Homework
I wanted to stress again the importance of the 7th graders doing their homework every night.  This gives them an extra opportunity to practice the Math and Language Arts concepts that we are discussing during the week. It is important that they get as much practice as they can.  There is not always enough time during the school day for the students to get enough practice.  It also allows me to see if they are understanding the concepts well enough that I can move on to other objectives.

Homework is ultimately your child’s responsibility, but please remind them of the importance of it.  Thank you for helping your students succeed in their school work.

Folder/Planner
Please make sure that your 7th grader is giving you their planner to sign each day.  Also, please make sure that they are bringing their folders home and returning them to school.  This is the best way to communicate with me.
