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.
