7th Grade News (10/13)

It was a strange week here at the middle school due to the long weekend and missing 8th graders. Do you think fall is her for good? If fall is here, how long before winter decides to run the show?

Upcoming Events: 

October 31st – Fall Family Fest: Haven’t you always wished that there was a field day in the Fall?  A chance to come hang out with your kids, their teachers, and fellow parents and enjoy the changing leaves around campus?  Us too!  So we decided to make it happen with Fall Family Fest.  The WCDS Inaugural Fall Family Fest will be held on October 31st from 1:20-3:00 for 2nd-8th grades.

After lunch, children can change into costumes before the festivities begin. Parents, please join us for an afternoon of fun at the middle school branch campus anytime after 1:00.  We will begin our parade around the pool as soon as the children arrive at the park led by our grand marshal’s Ms. H and Maddie Kirchner, the winner of the Grand Marshal auction prize. Then, the children will rotate through different stations with their classmates.

  • English w/ Mr. Rouse – Students started another unit of vocabulary and the novel Refugee by Alan Gratz.
  • Pre-Algebra w/ Mrs. Boldrick – While the 8th grade students were away in Florida, the 7th graders reviewed exponents and order of operations. Next week, with the whole class back together, we’ll work on graphing on the coordinate plane.
  • Algebra w/ Mrs. Murray-We only had 2 students for the week because 8th grade was in Florida.  We spent the week learning about strategy with different math games and activities.
  • Music w/ Mrs. Chelsey – On Wednesday we reviewed for our first music quiz on notes and rhythms and started learning a couple basic vocal warm ups, as well as began learning our choral piece. Friday morning students took the quiz, and we continued getting to know our voices through song!
  • Science w/ Mrs. Farris – Students embraced lecture-based classes and began to build an understanding of cell structure. To connect the smallest unit of life to the world around us, cells are the building blocks (bricks) that form tissues (walls), organs (buildings), and organ systems (cities). We identify organelles and their functions. Students completed notes during lecture to prepare for our model building next week.
