Guys, it's summer!! What a great year class of 2024! Enjoy your summer and come back ready for 7th grade Life Science, refreshed, rejuvinated, and ready to take on the year! If you feel so inclined to get a head start on 7th grade curriculum, I've attached a booklet that goes over EVERYTHING that you will learn for the year. I hear they give pre-tests, so you might want to take a look :)
Enjoy your summer guys, thanks for an amazing year as I finish out my teacher career as Ms. Dudek and head into teaching as Mrs. Williams!
This week we are continuing our novel studies. Remember your first book is due on THURSDAY!
Field day has been changed to Friday, 5/18 so you have a few more days to get your clothes in order.
The end of the year awards ceremony is scheduled for Monday, 5/21. Make sure you give your parent your yellow invitation if you received one this morning for them to attend. Today is also the LAST DAY for book bags and lockers. Make sure that you have taken everything out of your locker, including your lock if you have one.

Today we started our novel studies by selecting our first book in 1st, 2nd, or 4th period classes. 3rd period started reading "Life as we Knew it". You are welcome to purchase your own copy of the book you are reading, or you are able to check out Ms. Dudek's books of the ones she has class sets of. Your first novel report is due on the 17th, so make sure you are making some progress in reading each day.

Make sure you are turning in all your late assignments as soon as possible! Some grades are very low because work is not being turned in on time.
This week we will be working on our review assignment with Ms. Johnson. Remember to turn this into her at the end of each period for her to mark off that you are making progress. It MUST be done Friday 5/4 and turned in, in order to receive your grade.
We will start our Novel Study on 5/7, so make sure you have secured the book you wish to read by then.
3rd period: we will read "Life as we Knew it". I have a class set but you are welcome to purchase your own copy.
Today progress reports went home with students. These grades should not be surprise to you since Ms. Dudek passed out detailed progress reports on 4/25/18 to have parents sign. Make sure you view your grades online, then have your parent sign off on the envelope and return it on Monday. Remember that printed grade reports no longer exist for progress reports and report cards.
Hopefully you were able to make some progress on your review assignment today! Remember that the entire assignment is due next Friday, 5/4.
