Seventh Grade families we need your help! Raffle purchase envelopes were sent home with your students on Friday, and you can purchase raffle tickets all week leading up to the Community Dinner on Friday. Seventh Grade families we need your help! The theme of our ARC raffle basket is sports and as of Friday we only had one item in it. Please donate a sports related item and help fill our basket. Balls of any type or shape (ping pong, soccer, football, basketball, baseball, softball, handball, tennis ball, marbles, etc.), any outdoor game or sport accessories, swim goggles, nerf bats, memorabilia, are just a few of the possibilities. We have four days to fill the basket and your help will be greatly appreciated.

We have finished our Mystery Mixture Investigation and identified the two mystery substances as citric acid and sodium bicarbonate. Now we are learning about the first elements to be identified, who the scientists were and how they isolated and named them. Our labs will explore the gases we have seen created by the reactions we have observed. We will decide if these gases are made up of elements and whether or not we can say they can be called matter.
We will be starting our fourth (Math) Problem of the Week this Monday. I hope you will ask questions of your students. Some suggested questions: What is the Problem of the Week this week? What is your thinking about the problem? What strategies have you tried? Can you explain your solution to me so that I understand your reasoning? I’m not asking parents to solve these problems, please don’t. But your questions can remind your student to manage their time over the week so that they can be prepared to explain their thinking on paper every Friday. Problem of the Week is a long term learning process and I expect tremendous growth over the year.
Seventh Grade Math is focused on prime factoring and operations with fractions. Our goal is to write word problems that can be solved with fractions.
Eighth Grade Math is all about solving equations that contain fractions. It looks complicated, but it requires the same step by step process that students used last year with linear equations.
