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.
7th grade has been using a free online platform called EVERFI. They have several courses sponsored through various organizations such as Mass Mutual, the NHL, and the Patriots. All are standard aligned and approved by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Themes include: science and math in hockey, becoming an entrepreneur by creating a food truck business, developing coding skills as a secret agent, exploring STEM careers, and more. They even have a few on health, character development, african-american history, and digital literacy. Ask your student if they have started any of the modules.
For the entire year and over the summer, 7th graders will have access to an online program called IXL (I Excel).
This program allows students to work at their own pace and skill level and is aligned with the standards. There is a “Analytics” tab that allows both you and your child to view their progress, trouble spots, time spent on each skill etc…
Please ask your child to show you the program. They can also log in through the IXL app and work “on the go” if they want.
