7th Grade May Update from Greg Anysz
Dear 7th Grade Families,
What a busy month as we end our seventh-grade year. The class has had two rounds of elections for next year’s Middle School Student Council. Congratulations to Carter Anderson and Jackson Gring who will be the 2018-2019 Middle School Co-Presidents. Also, congratulations to Maddi Maurio and Alexis Richmond who will be the 2018-2019 8th-grade Co-Presidents. I hope everyone has a great summer filled with family time, travel, and relaxation! The next three weeks will fly by as we bring our year to an end. Thank you all for your support throughout the year!
The Lead From Here competency focus for the month is “Ethical” – makes honest choices, does the right thing, and encourages others to do the same. The first activity has students experience that no two people are alike in their abilities in the activity “what works for me might not work for you.” Advisors will facilitate a boggle challenge, a number challenge, a tongue twisters challenge, and a balancing act challenge. This is always a fun advisory to witness! Next, each advisory completes a lesson on integrity in which they act out ways that it show up in real life. The last advisory lesson of the year allows the students time to write a letter to their advisor in 8th grade. This is a time for them to share information they feel an advisor may want to know as they begin eighth grade.
