7th GRADE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!
Below are a few tips to help you prepare for 7th grade:
1. It is VERY strongly recommended that all 7th grade students purchase their own TI-84 Series calculator to use. This calculator will serve them through high school and beyond.
2. Check out the 7-1 Weebly to see what the teachers are like and what the homework load looks like.
3. Buy some zebra-patterned clothes because that's the team you'll be on next year!

END OF YEAR AWARDS ASSEMBLY
We will have our End of Year Awards Assembly on Tuesday, June 2, at 11:00 AM in the auditorium. Who is invited? Everyone! Bring family and friends of the 6-1 students! Students will be receiving Honor Roll certificates and special team awards. Because we are giving out so many awards, the parents of these students will NOT be contacted or notified that they are receiving a certificate. Check your child's grade sheets or PowerSchools to see if he/she qualifies. Award or not, please come and celebrate your child’s progress this year with us!

Students have the opportunity to rework or retake assessments that score a 76% or lower (for MOST classes). If an assessment qualifies, a "reworks sheet" will be stapled to the paper and will have an expiration date stamped on it. The "reworks sheet" MUST be completed IN FULL by the expiration date. Reworks MUST be completed within 5 school days.
