7th Grade News

Updates

It is hard to believe the end of the year is approaching! We have had many successes to celebrate and much to be thankful for. Many fine opportunities, for extension of knowledge and character, are still in store for your 7th graders.

We are hopeful to end Great Brook Strong, continuing to hold our high expectations for excellence over the next two weeks. We plan to create many memories! As one 7th grader wrote in his 7 word essay, "Shine as bright as possible. It's possible!"

Thank you all for your continued support.

All aboard!

Homework

Ms. Ketchum-Math

.Here's to an inspiring year's end!

We will be completing many, traditionally favorite, math activities over the next week. Included are completion of our 7-word essays, Toss off (new this year with the popularity of bottle flipping!), A Look Back (slide show of photographs throughout the year), Celebrating Successes (certificates for all students given) and Fly Up Day (a hard one for me as I don't want them to go!) It is most enjoyable to be amidst their, end of the year, engaged enthusiasm!

I am most grateful to be a small part of your wonderful students life. It is my great honor to be inspired, and inspire them, each day and I thank you all for trusting me with your precious child. I will watch their triumphs next year with great pride and admiration.
