Grade 7

Hello parents and guardians,

September has flown by quickly. We are jumping into October and cooler weather. The grade 9s are part of a pilot course that is focusing on future goals. Through this course, students are completing activities that help them understand how they learn best and how this can help them in their careers in the future. It is my hope that we can have guest speakers in the future from different career paths to answer students questions. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out and contact me at the school.

Hello everyone!

Welcome back to the new school year!  I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable summer break. This year is shaping up to be fun and exciting with many great lessons and activities. I'd like to welcome our new grade 7-9 teacher Lise Charbonneau to the junior high wing. She comes to us with a background in science and I'm excited to see all of the awesome ideas she has. 

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to reach out to me!

Wela'lin,
Erika

Grade 7-8-9! We made it! It was a long year but you did it. Throughout all the challenges, you came to school (in person and virtual) and worked hard. I’m so proud of you.

Congrats to all the graduates this year and to those moving onto the next grade. In this year of uncertainty, you continued and worked hard and did it! I can’t wait to see all of my new grade 7’s next year and to teach my current students again.

Have a safe and fun summer everyone. See you in September!

There is going to be a change to our online learning schedule. Check it out! You will still use the same link (the one in this classroom) to log on but a few things to take note of...

  • Classes will not start at 9:30am.
  • Lunch is from 11:30am to 12:30pm.
  • Monday and Wednesday from 2:30pm to 3:30pm are for extra help or support with finishing up assignments.

You have Friday afternoons off!

Hi everyone!

 

Well it looks like we have transitioned to virtual learning for the next little bit. I’m hoping that by viewing videos, having class discussions and using the features of Google for Education, we can make the lessons interactive and interesting. The schedule is basically the same every day, so hopefully students will be quick to pick up on assignments and be present in class. I am including the schedule so that everyone has access to it. 

Grade 7’s are working on a Nelson Unit in English with a focus on Fears and Phobias. We are reading short stories, poems and information texts and jumping into finding descriptive words and how to engage a reader. In Science Grade 7s are continuing to work on Forces and Structures and Grade 8’s are working on Hydraulics and Pneumatics. Hopefully we can use videos and demonstrations to help understand the concepts. Finally, in Grade 7 Health we are looking at addictions to drugs and alcohol.

If anyone has any questions please reach out. I’m always available to help navigate online learning and will do my best to make the transition as easy as possible.

All students will be evaluated and assessed on their virtual learning and attendance will be taken by the teacher. All students are expected to attend class virtually. See schedule below for student’s meeting schedule times.

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!

Wela’lin, Erika
