The 7th grade team has compiled THIS document to serve as a "one-stop shop" for each of the four main content areas (ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies). Please review and reach out to respective teachers with any specific questions you may have.
Teachers will be putting together packets for any students who have indicated they do NOT have access to a computer with internet. These paper copies will be delivered to homes on Friday, 3/20. There will be one required day of academic instruction to help make up for what we are missing (there are a total of 5 to be made up, however three will be made up during Spring Break and the other will be added on to the end of the year...click HERE for the updated school calendar). For 7th and 8th grade Social Studies, I will be utilizing Schoology to share assignments (both those recommended for extra practice as well as the one day of mandatory assignments). Students should log into Schoology as soon as they are able so that they can view the learning calendar and resources available. Please note, I have listed resources under specific days, but they do NOT need to be completed on those days. The only required day is what I have posted under Friday, 3/27.
Next week, all teachers will be offering one hour of virtual office hours per day (teachers may use Zoom or a conference call). I will be using Zoom. My code is 481-773-632. You only need to conference in if you have questions. Please note, times are subject to change and I will communicate accordingly.

Tues 3/24: 10am-11am
Wed 3/25: 10am-11am
Thurs 3/26: 10am-11am

This will be a fun day with many events such as a Scavenger Hunt, Pi-inspired haiku (yes, ELA is involved as well!) and a Pi Bee. Students can prepare for the Pi Bee by studying the digits of pi and memorizing as many as possible. There will be prizes for the winners in each class as well as the grand prize winner!

We also have another short week as teachers and students are off on Friday, 3/6. Trimester 2 ends on Thursday, 3/5 (meaning this is the last day to turn in any missing assignments). Teachers must have grades in by Monday, 3/9.
Last week a flyer went home in Thurs. folders informing students of a "Pi Bee" on Friday, 3/13. This competition will see who can recite the most digits of pi from memory. Winner will get to enjoy a pizza with four of their friends sometime during the following week. We will also be having many other fun, interactive activities on that day to refresh our memories about what pi is and how we use it to find area and circumference of circles. Mr. Persinger is creating a Sign-Up list for pies for students to bring in and enjoy during the Pi Bee. This will take place immediately after lunch in the cafeteria on Friday, 3/13. Students will also be participating in a cross-curricular scavenger hunt (weather permitting) on Friday 3/13.
Have a great week!
