We hope that you are finding the information you need from our team. Our websites have some information on them, but as we explore more efficient forms of communication, we have been using Google Classroom for students to keep track of their work and for us to share information with them. If you have any questions about our team or our classes and your student cannot answer them, please email us! We will respond within 24 working hours.

Field Trip Update & Late Work Policy

posted Dec 12, 2016, 4:50 PM by Nancy Sebert   [ updated Dec 12, 2016, 4:50 PM ]

The field trip has been rescheduled for Thursday, 12/22, the day before vacation starts! Since I already have the permission slips and payment taken care of, I will expect the same for this new date unless I hear from you specifically that your child CANNOT attend. Students need a bagged snack and lunch and are asked to dress nicely for the theater. We are very lucky that the theater group offered to do a new show - let's hope the weather cooperates this time!


Also, the seventh grade teachers would like to improve student work completion and understanding of due dates, so we would like to start practicing the Traip Academy late work policy with the students starting this trimester. If students miss major assessments, they will have two days to communicate with the teacher and make a plan for getting the work done. They will then have two weeks to complete the missing work. We are committed to all students and their success, but we also want them to understand time limits, due dates, and skills that need to be built upon within a timely manner. We will have many reminders for students to develop their independent learner skills and communicate effectively with their teachers about making up missing work.


Sincerely, 
The Seventh Grade Team

Students were asked to identify a strength, spark, or interest that they wanted to showcase for their peers and the time for that showcase is NEXT WEDNESDAY! On the early release day, we will block out two periods of the day to have students present and experience expertise in a variety of areas, such as sports skills, musical talents, love of cooking and baking, computer skills, and many other unique interests.

Permission slips have gone home for our field trip on December 5th to the Chamber Repertory Theatre production of ENCORE! This production is five classic short stories performed by just five actors - it's amazing! Students will experience both the stage production and the written form of these stories by the end of the year.
