We are looking forward to getting to know you. On the first day of school we will meet you on the field. Glovers Regiment will perform our traditional first day of school salute. Our new Principal, Dr. Peter Cohen will greet us and we will all march into the school together. Our first day will be a mixture of getting to know each other activities and some academic work. You will not need your school supplies, so please wait until Tuesday to bring them in. If you are worried about your summer reading, the assignment will be due on Thursday August 29th. Please let your parents know that Back to School Night will be on Thursday September 19th. We will go over curriculum at that time. Parents are of course welcome to set up a quick meeting with us before that if they wish. See you soon!

The 7th Grade is ready to show off our work at the 3rd Exhibition on Monday June 17th. Our Poetry Anthologies will be on view in the Community Room starting at 630. At 7pm we will open up the advisories for our Mini-Golf course. The Theme this year is video games. Please feel free to take a family selfie in front of our Wild West back drop. We also have a Science Fiction back drop.
The 7th Grade Team wants to thank all parents for your support with our projects and for celebrating with us at Exhibition. Stay tuned for more information on our upcoming projects. We will continue to need help making field trips possible. We will be going to Project Adventure on May 28 and 29 and will need car pools. We will also be returning to Redd’s Pond to write poetry and investigate water quality for our Community Service Learning. We also look forward to our Mini-Golf project which will begin with a trip to Castle Creek.
Today we took part in an “Hour of Code” activity where we plotted a narrative and added realistic dialogue using Scratch.
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!
