Seventh Grade – DeAnda

October Newsletter

Gym will be starting on October 10th. Please make sure your child has an extra pair of shoes at school for gym. Our gym day will be on Thursday’s from 12:45 to 1:45. We will begin nutrition class the first week in October. We will be having a Harvest Party this month, please be on the lookout for more information. Students will not be able to wear masks or scary costumes so please keep that in mind.

Reminders:
Reading reflection needs to be turned in with homework every week.
There should be 3-4 entries reflecting on what your child read. Please make sure this is being completed and turned in because practicing to read helps make better readers. We will begin Book-IT where students will earn a coupon for a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! They may earn this coupon at the end of the month for turning in their reading reflection each week.

Homework is due the following Monday from when it is sent home.

Spelling tests are on Fridays.
