2020 7th Grade Weekly Newsletter

Information for 7th graders and their parents/guardians

7th graders and parents/guardians!

Week of May 25-29

We hope you had a nice long weekend! It was nice to have a little break from school, even for just for a day! Hopefully, this Memorial Day has given you an opportunity to reflect on those who have given their lives for our country.

It was a little sad to have our Naples Memorial Day parade cancelled. We miss seeing our students perform in the Naples Marching Band. We look forward to this event and the group performing next year!

Our year is quickly approaching its end. Mr. Frahm contacted families on Friday to inform us that the last day of school will be Tuesday, June 16. With this in mind, students please make sure you are staying committed to completing assignments. We don't want to see any student end up with a lot of work to race and finish at the end. This could have a negative impact on grades. Don't forget students and families can check SchoolTool to see what assignment(s) are missing and need to be turned in. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out directly to the classroom teacher.

Happy short week! Four days until the weekend!
