Carpool Rule Reminder of the Week!

What to say when your 7th grader comes home and says, "Dang, I have to serve at the Mother's Christmas Luncheon".......

"What a great experience this will be for you!"

The caterer of the event will train the students this Wednesday to learn the proper protocol for serving at a formal event! They will also be helping with clean up at the end of the luncheon.

7th graders are asked to wear concert dress, tennis shoes and Christmas accessories.

Due to the fact that we need the help of all 7th graders in clean-up, students may not leave before dismissal at 2:25. They will need to check in with their advisor before they leave. If they do not get permission to be dismissed, it will directly affect their "Accepts Responsibility" skill grade.

***Some students will be excused for a small part due to performances. They must return as soon as their performance is finished.

Repeat After Me

....we got this! The students should have no other homework but final exam studying! We are in the ending stretch!

Thursday December 10: Final #1 Math: 8:20-9:50, Final #2 Science: 10:05-11:35

7C History went on #anadventure15 with another school in Saskatchewan, Canada and "live tweeted" about culture and youth of today. This is part of a large project in which 3500 schools globally are connecting with each other. Students shared videos and photos about our school and life in Pasadena, CA. It was a lively, exciting experience which promoted the positive use of social media in the classroom which is a focus of our digital citizenship training. If you are interested in seeing some of the twitter conversation please check out Ms. Kelley-Lossada’s twitter feed: @ms_bkl.
