Good morning!

I hope you are all doing well. It’s been so wonderful to be in school for the last month! While things are a little different I do love being in the classroom every day and teaching your students in person! Here is what’s coming up this next week in Literature and Religion:

7th Grade Literature:
Monday: We will be reviewing our study guide for their short story test.
Tuesday: We will play a game with the study guide to help the students study in class.
Wednesday: We will be working on our MyPath lessons.
Thursday: Students will complete their short story test.

Coming up: Our next unit will be the novel My Brother Sam is Dead which we will begin reading on Monday, October 28.

7th Grade Religion
Monday: We will learn about the life of St. Matthew and work on the Family Crest project (this is being assigned today)
Tuesday: We will learn about the life of St. Lorenzo Ruiz and work on the Family Crest project
Wednesday: We will learn about the life of St. Padre Pio, attend mass virtually, discuss the homily, and work on the Family Crest project, due tomorrow.

Just a reminder that next Friday, September 25 is a Teacher In-Service day so there is no school for your students.

Have a great weekend!
