What is Happening in 7th Grade?

We had a great day at Children’s Island last week and we are looking forward to several upcoming field trips. Look for a permission slip coming home soon for our fall trip to Project Adventure on Monday and Tuesday September 24 and 25. We will be working on team building games and the stretching ourselves with the high ropes course. In early October we will go on a walking trip to Redd’s Pond and Old Burial Hill. We hope to see lots of parents on Parent’s Night Thursday September 20th from 6 to 8pm. We will introduce ourselves and discuss curriculum for the year. Bring your questions!

The 7th Grade Team

Mini-Golf Geometry and Physics Project

(7th graders finishing up their mini-golf projects)

They have had many critical thinking opportunities and the final 14 hole course is going to be amazing. Students will also have their reformer projects, Civil War book reviews and the end of the year portfolios.  Come join us to celebrate the end of the year and to see how hard the classes have been working. Our last exhibition is next Monday, the 18th at 6pm. See you there! (Golf attire encouraged)

Mini-Golf at Castle Creek

We had a fantastic time at Castle Creek! The students were very excited and came up with some great ideas for their own mini-golf courses they will create for 3rd Exhibition. They will tie it to their National Park research as a theme! Ask them about the math (geometry) and science (energy transfers) involved with the sport.
