7th Graders have a project for the novel “The Pearl” that they have been working on. This front page newspaper consists of 4 different articles that relate to the story. This is due on Wednesday next week. They will have class time on Monday and Tuesday to work on it, but I did encourage some of them to use the weekend too. I look forward to seeing these finished projects.

I also want to encourage you to check out our classes page on the website. I am going to try and do a better job of putting pictures here. Go to hopeseattle.org and then 7th grade class.

Lastly, thank you for all the treats sent in last week. The kids did a great job of putting together treat plates and handing them to our neighbors.

Have a restful weekend!

Week of January 23-27

Hi 7th Grade Families,

Yesterday’s field trip to see Hidden Figures was such a blessing in many ways.  The students were helpful, kind and so respectful to others in the theater.  They held doors open and let others who were not in our group go before them in the food line.
This didn’t go unnoticed by a few elderly women attending the same movie.  These two women came up to me after the movie and complimented our kids as well as shared that they see our kids as the future and see them as making a difference.  They shared that they had grown up during the 1960’s and witnesses the racial diversity in our country.  I’m going to share this with the students today- but wanted to let you know as well- the hope and kindness that was reflected by your kids was seen.  I’m so thankful for them!
A few things going on this week:
  • I will be taking the 8th graders to Olympia tomorrow, Mrs. Kunkle will be with them during homeroom and literacy time.
  • Tomorrow is our chapel celebrating Lutheran Schools week.  They will be worshiping with Concordia Seattle and Seattle Lutheran High School at the High School at 9:30.  You are welcomed to join them.
  • On Thursday please send in a dozen donuts or cookies or hot drinks that can be made with hot water (tea bags, cocoa, cider, etc.)  We will be putting baskets of goodies together and delivering them to Menashe Jewelry store on Friday afternoon.
Have a great week!
Week of January 16-20, 2017
Schoology Reminder:
Please be sure you and your child are checking schoology.  If there are  any questions about missing assignments, please have them talk to me.
Re-Enrollment
It is hard to believe that it is time to be thinking about the 2017-2018 school year.  Re-enrollment paperwork was sent home today.  Please email Shari or Sally in the office if you have any questions regarding this process.
Supplies Needed: 
It is that time of year to restock.  Many of the students are out of paper and pens/pencils.  Please take some time this weekend to restock.
Next week Jan. 23-27 is Lutheran’s Schools Week.
This is a week that Lutheran schools around the nation celebrate.  We will start off by coming together on SUNDAY Jan. 22 at our 10:30 church service to sing with the other classes.  This is an excellent way to participate in an event that celebrates who we are as a Lutheran school.
