WPMS 7th Grade
Somewhere in the Middle
February 26th, 2021
Can you believe it is almost March?? The kids have been working hard and are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of this school year. Many students are beginning to see that they are finishing (or almost) all of the PFAs in a class! As students complete this milestone for the year, it is important to acknowledge the hard work and learning that got them there. It is also important to remember that this does not mean that student is "done" with that class! Students can still continue to work on AFAs, and will still be working hard in class on project work to demonstrate the application of those skills.
As students complete PFAs for a class, they will earn a racecar to be hung up in the hallway of the 7th grade area. We will have them put their name on the car, and add a designation (TBD) to represent the completion of classes as they go. We hope the kids enjoy the feeling of accomplishment as they are able to show their hard work to the world throughout the rest of this school year.
Have a great weekend!
Progress Reports were sent home with all 7th graders today!!!

Possible work ideas for this weekend:
- 7th grade math classes were given a review for the upcoming Rational Numbers Unit Test. Students can work on this, prodigy or mobymax to study for their assessment. The test will not be for another week, so they have plenty of time for practice!
- Science classes should have Checkpoint 1 and 2 completed in the Problem Solving Plastics project. They can be brainstorming design ideas to solve their chosen plastics problem
- English Project: Justices and Injustices due today!! Have your student show you their completed slideshow.
Parent Support ideas:
Parents, we are seeing some common trends in writing that we could use
your help on reinforcing. Kids are so used to text messaging, that
they are doing that in their writing. These are the rules to look for:
1. Always write in complete sentences.
2. Do not start sentences with: And, So, Because.
3. End all sentences with punctuation.
4. The words "Explain" or "Summarize" mean to write in more than one sentence.
5. Capitalize proper nouns.
All classes will be requiring these 5 rules to be followed within student work.
Please feel free at any time to ask to read your student's work! They should be proud to show you the writing that they turn in.
New Band Schedule!
Due to the middle school returning to all in-person learning, the band schedule has been updated to fit those needs. Thank you Mrs. Garcia for all of your hard work to get kids still accessing band!!
