7th Grade iPad Rules of the Road

 

This is the middle child, no longer the sixth-grader negotiating locker combinations, winding through the maze of hallways, or jockeying for position in the lunch line. By the seventh grade, students have grown into their role as citizens of the Weston Middle School.
 

One of the most dramatic changes for students as they cross over into grade seven is the expectation around homework. Students will have homework in every subject almost every night. Teachers do build in “no homework weekends” to honor family time; however, grade seven is the year teachers prepare students for the challenges that lie ahead in grade eight. Teachers reinforce what sixth-graders have learned about managing their agendas and completing homework on time. Additionally, teachers encourage students to become self-advocates and seek help when necessary. Organization and time management are two critical skills that seventh-graders need to acquire in order to juggle the demands of short and long term assignments. Another valuable skill taught in grade seven is note taking, which is reinforced and intertwined throughout every aspect of the curriculum.


Seventh grade marks a year of growth not only academically, but socially as well. As emerging adolescents, social groups and friendships rise to the forefront. Lessons that serve to broaden awareness about relationships are explored in poetry, literature, writing and social studies. The performing and visual arts provide another vehicle for students to express their inner being. The vibrant health curriculum tackles many of the sensitive and critical issues facing seventh-graders in an increasingly complex world. A code of ethics and decorum is continually reinforced as young people grow and change in this pivotal year.


As the seventh-graders move on to grade eight, they are well equipped to forge ahead academically and shine personally.


Open and honest collaboration between home and school is very important to us. The seventh-grade team leaders and guidance counselor are available to address any questions or concerns that parents may have, and look forward to working in partnership with you.
