Grade 7

Hello Parents and Guardians!

March has gone by so quickly and we are not into April. With that brings Science Fair for grades 7-8. This year it looks a little different, with students completing experiments and creating PowerPoint Presentations. These are going to be uploaded to a Google Classroom and judged. From there, the winners will be uploaded to the MK Regional Site and we will see! All experiments have been completed and just a few more presentations to be completed.  We will hopefully post the winners on the LSK School webpage so everyone can take a look. In ELA for grade 7 we have just completed a unit on Ancient Greece and will be moving onto a short unit on Fears and Phobias. I think it will be exciting for the students. Report card day is April 6th and from there Parent Teacher is April 9th. The grade 7-9 teachers will be reaching out to parents to book a phone conference for parent teacher. We look forward to talking to all our students parents.

Hello Parents and Guardians!

February has flown by in the blink of an eye. With a few snow days mixed in there, we still managed to get a lot of work done. Grade 7 has almost completed their Ancient Greece Unit – with mask making as the final project. All students in grades 7-9 have begun their science fair projects. It’s going to be a great learning time up in our wing. Science Fair will be virtual this year, with projects being presented via PowerPoint and video. Look to the LSK School Webpage for winning presentations in early April!

Grades 7-9 had an awesome opportunity today! They got to learn about snares ( and made their own!), got to see some pelts, skulls (and even skat) and got to see the process of skinning a coyote, beaver and muskrat!

Hello parents and guardians of grades 7-9!

As we move into February students are hard at work. Grade 7's are continuing to work on their unit on Greek Mythology and will be creating their own face masks in the likeness of the god or goddess they have chosen. They are excited for this and have been planning what their masks need to look like. In Science grade 7's are learning about animal interactions and how they live together and live off of each other. Grade 8's just finished up their unit on Climate Change and are jumping into Science Fair. Grade 9's have finished their Exams and are moving on to a few new courses during 2nd semester. They have completed Science 9 and will be taking Health 9. All the students in 7-9 have completed Tech Ed and will be taking Home Economics with Grade 7 focusing on Sewing, Grade 8 on Foods and Nutrition and Grade 9's on Child Studies. I can't wait to see what they produce!

If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me!

Hello LSK Parents/Guardians and Students,
Welcome back from a somewhat extended Holiday Break. I hope everyone stayed safe and relaxed during our time away from

school. I also hope everyone is ready to get back to routines and learning 

For the rest of January and into February we will be starting new units in each of the subjects that I teach. Grade 7 will be jumping into a unit on Greek Mythology and Short Stories in English, will be looking at a unit on Physical Health and Hygiene in Health and in Science will be learning about Species Adaptations over time. Grade 8 Science will find students looking at Oceans and Climate change and the effects on organisms. Finally, Grade 9 will be finishing the semester learning about the Solar System and the Universe. Grade 9's will also be writing their first set of exams the last week of January. Stay tuned for the schedule! If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me.

Hello everyone!

As you know we have moved to virtual learning at LSK. For grade 7-9 this means they will be logging into a google meet daily at 9am and teachers will be providing lessons and activities in English, Math, Mi’kmaq, Health, Science and Social Studies. Grade 7 will be finishing up a persuasive writing piece in English and moving into a short poetry unit. In grade 7 Health we will be focusing on mental health activities and in Science we will continue to learn about eco systems. Grade 8 Science will continue Climate Change and Grade 9 Science will continue Chemical and Physical Changes. I look forward to seeing everyone in our virtual classroom! I’ll miss seeing everyone in person but this is a great way to keep everyone safe and educated.

Hello everyone!

The first month and a half of school has flown by so quickly. The grade 7-9's have been very busy in class during this time. Grade 7 will be starting a novel study focusing on the book A Stranger at Home which is a follow up book to Fatty Legs and it is about a young girls return home from Residential School. In Science class, grade 7's are finishing up a unit on Mixtures and Solutions, Grade 8 are finishing up a unit on Cells and Grade 9 are finishing up their unit on Cellular Reproduction. We have had some fun activities such as making water filters and cell organelle cakes to demonstrate our understanding of the topics. Halloween is coming up and grade 7 will be doing a quick writing activity around the topic. One note, Grade 7-9 teachers have gotten together to plan some time for each of the students to go to the store within their bubbles. I am including the schedule below so that parents/students know.

Hello students and parents!

September is over and we have been back at school for a few weeks. In that time we have jumped into work in grade 7-8-9 and are having fun with our learning already. In grade 7 we have used individual cereal bars to look at mixtures and in grade 8 and 9 we have used individual cakes with candies to represent plant and animal cells. Science is FUN! In grade 7 English we are reading a novel called Not Cancelled and it is full of stories of things that are positive throughout the Covid 19 Pandemic. Students are generating great conversations. Just a reminder to students and parents – all of the assignments from Grades 7-9 Science as well as Grade 7 English and Health are posted in students google classrooms so they can access any work that has been missed. I'm excited to keep on learning and having engaging discussions in grades 7-9!

Hello everyone!!!

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 School year at LSK. I know that everything will look different this year, but all of the teachers and staff at LSK are excited to see students faces. I am the grade 7 homeroom teacher again this year, teaching them English, Health, and Science. I will be teaching Grade 8 and 9 Science as well. I'm looking forward to getting back to routine and back to teaching. Myself, the grade 8 homeroom and grade 9 homeroom teacher will be creating an introduction video and posting it soon! I hope all the students are excited to come back and begin the new year of learning. See you all soon!
