UPDATES: Bring headphones every day to 8th period for Reflex Math!

January 2018


Next week is conference week! Monday , Tuesday, and Wednesday are normal day schedule and the last chance to retake tests or turn in work. That Thursday, January 25th, students will have the opportunity to partake in Mustang Madness. In order to participate the child must be passing all classes and have no referrals. This time will be the last effort to help the students who aren't passing to study or retake a final exam. The following week as we transition from January to February is a regular Monday and Tuesday with a 'Friday' schedule on Wednesday and Thursday, January 31 and February 1st. We hope to see you there!

This month is flying by with the end of the semester a week from today! Please check StudentVue and keep updated on the latest changes in your child's progress. The teachers have given your child the opportunity to make up missed work.

The classes are working on how to have academic discourse and many students are rising to the occasion. They will have an opportunity to research a topic of interest with our Night at the Museum, a projects based approach to learning! Look for more details this February.

Homework Help

Homework in grade 7 is necessary this year. However, the idea of homework is changing. We would like to see 100% participation in class and what doesn't get finished is then homework. It is a time to review today's lessons and organize that big binder. The end of the 1st quarter is approaching and all make-up tests and assignments must be completed by November 2nd! Did you know that there is a 1-800 number to call for math help? Your grade 7 math student will be bringing that phone number home this week.

The grade 7 team has revisited our homeroom time after the conferences and we will be checking planners for parent signatures twice a week in our homeroom (8th period) classes! That is also the time to complete classwork and prepare for tests or review to do your best each day.


Week of October 9-12

Fall 7th Grade Conferences 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The 7th Grade Team will be holding conferences next week, Wednesday October 11th and Thursday October 12th here at Millicoma School in the auditorium (band room). If our team has not contacted you for a private conference, please plan to attend student-led conferences on either date.

These conferences will provide an opportunity for students to reflect upon their successes so far this year and to provide you with examples of what they have learned in each of the academic areas. We emphasize that these are student-led conferences—please bring your child to participate. There will be an opportunity to talk with teachers immediately after the student led-conference.

We have not assigned specific times or dates. Instead, please plan on spending about 30 minutes, and drop by with your child for their student-led conference during any of the dates/times below:

Wednesday October 11th 3:00-4:30pm and 6:15-7:00pm

Thursday October 12th 3:00-4:30pm and 5:00-7:00pm

Due to other obligations, some of our team members will be unavailable on specific dates. Therefore, if you have MATH-specific concerns and would like to talk with Mrs. Frangopoulos, please plan to attend on Wednesday.

Thank you,

Miss McMackin, Mrs. Frangopoulos, Mrs. Nortness, and Mr. Goodson
