Happy New Year  7th grade parents-

It is great to be back with the kids- their energy and joyfulness brings me normalcy, which is so valued these days.  As many of you know my mom has been diagnoses with stage 4 breast cancer that has metastasized to her bones, lymph nodes and lung.  While this New Year brings me anxiety and fear I find hope and peace in God’s promises to be with us always and in HIS promise of everlasting life with HIM.  Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes for my mom- keep them coming! Thank you also for the blessings of the Christmas gifts- I’m looking forward to using my Head to Toe message!
As we start off this New Year there are just a few things to make sure you are aware of:

THANK YOU for showing so much generosity!

Did you know that when the student come in the classroom in the morning they start taking down the chairs preparing for the day without being asked?  I sometimes just sit and watch this in pure thankfulness for their kind, servant hearts.  I know as parents we can often get frustrated because we can ask and ask, (nag and nag). It’s good to know that all the hard work you have done as parents has paid off with their actions in the classroom!  This class continues to shine bright!

In Literacy we will start a Narrative Writing Unit entitled; “Walking In Someone Else’s Shoes.  This is our first formal writing that we have done this year.  We will be working on organization in telling a story with a beginning, middle and end.

Week of October 16, 2017

I have to take a moment to brag about these 7th graders!

Yesterday the 7th grade group as a whole was not excited about the Orange Ruler Fun Run.  This lack of enthusiasm was quickly spreading among the class the closer we got to the event.  I gave them a pep talk and encouraged/challenged them to go out and take this opportunity to be leaders,  run with enthusiasm, help out a younger student and change their attitudes!  Boy did they take this on- they had AWESOME attitudes, lead by example and ended the event showing leadership.  I was so proud of how they took this opportunity and made it so positive.  A great example of the type of class they are!
I also thought I would update you in what is going on in our literature class.  We have finished the book, Bud Not Buddy and they have been working on their final project of creating a suitcase that shows the settings of the story, the lessons learned and the values of the main character Bud.  They will finish this up tomorrow.  Next week we will be working on our DRA assessments and then move into a Narrative writing unit.   They are an enthusiastic class and I so enjoy teaching them.
Be sure to fill out the parent teacher conference form that is coming home in today’s communication envelope. I look forward to meeting with everyone!
Ask your child about our class pet- it’s quiet an idea!!
Have a great week and time off of school.  Looking forward to a good teachers conference and being back at it next week.
Blessings,
Mrs. Meyer

Week of September 12, 2017

As we ended our first week I asked the students what the best part of their week was, the majority answered, “seeing my friends”.  It’s been so great to see them catching up, hanging out and reconnecting.Week 2 is underway and believe it or not, we have already had students out because of sickness, boo hoo!  A cold has defiantly hit us so I got the hand sanitizer out, but please make sure that everyone is getting plenty of rest and covering coughs etc.  If your child does miss school, please make sure they are talking to their teachers to find out about missing work.  In my class, there is a tray that the students can find any handouts, notes etc. that they might have missed.  It is their responsibility to get these and talk to me if they need clarification on what they need to do.

Chalkable– this is the online system that we are using this year to post homework and grades.  The students will be receiving training on how to access their homework and grades this week.  I think they will find it user friendly, but please be sure to ask questions when they come up.

A few reminders:

  • I-Pad contracts are being sent home today, please read and sign.  I-Pad will be sent home once these contracts are signed and returned.
  • Chinook books should be sold or returned by FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22.

Save the Date, Upcoming events:

  • October 4, PTH meeting 6:00 p.m.
  • October 5, Seattle Lutheran High School will be sharing the movie Angst.  This film looks at anxiety, its causes and effects and what we can do about it.This is open to the community and recommended for ages 10 and up.
  • It’s not to early to be thinking about High School, as open houses are shared with us, I will be sure to send them out to you.  There will be an Open House for Seattle Lutheran High School, Thursday, October 26, 2017 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM

Make it a SUPER week.

Blessings,
Lisa
