Grade 7

This month has been a busy one! Report cards came out at the beginning of the month; if you would like to see me to discuss your child’s progress, please feel free to contact me at the school. The class has been wrapping up their study of fractions in math, and will shortly be moving on to begin exploring measurement. In ELA, we are finishing up our “Mystery” unit and have begun a novel study of Freak the Mighty. We have continued to work on heritage fair as part of our social curriculum, and in science the class continues to study mixtures and solutions. On March 10, we will be having our school Heritage Fair. Students have been working through an inquiry project which explores some aspect of Canadian Heritage. They will be displaying their work on tri-fold boards and will present their projects to judges. Some projects are truly amazing! On March 21, the Grade 7 and 8 classes will be venturing out to Table Mountain for their annual ski/snowboarding trip. Currently, we have all the Grade 7 chaperones we require. The interest is always high and I appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm. The permission forms were all sent home this past week. Please fill out the permission forms and return them to me as soon as possible. However, please do not send any money yet. We are trying to fundraise to offset some of the cost. I will let you know the first week of March how much each activity will cost. In closing, thank you for your continued support. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.
