Welcome to the weekly 7th grade update! These emails are designed to keep you up to date on what's happening inside and outside the classroom here in the seventh grade.
- PARCC Testing is coming in two weeks. The math tests will be held on the 17th and 18th while reading and writing tests will take place on the 23rd - 25th. Remember to give students lots of rest to do their best on the test! Also, we'd love donations of healthy snacks and bottled water. Please send donations of snacks and/or water with your child beginning next week. Thank you!
- Daylight Savings is coming this Sunday. Remember to spring forward and turn your clocks forward an hour.
- Volunteer Opportunity - Interested in walking or running? Have some free time to volunteer? Our 100 Mile Club chapter is planning a 5K walk/run event and need your help. If you're interested in volunteering your time either during the event or in preparation, we can use you. Please contact Mr. Logan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
