Tuesday, May 19th, 2020 – 7th grade work

Good morning 7th graders,

I am so proud of you and the service projects you have created to support members of our communities – here and abroad. Today, Tuesday of Spirit Week, kicks off the Feed Your Spirit Food Drive! Have fun and give what you can (no pun intended).

After you’ve shown your spirit and helped with the Food Drive, you have¬†three (possibly four) items for your Literature / LA To Do List:

  • Answer questions for Chapter 4 of The Outsiders (8 – 10 minutes)
  • Daily Journal (5 – 15 minutes)
  • Daily Reading (20 – 35 minutes)
  • Finish Chapter 5 of The Outsiders (0 – 30 minutes, depending on how much you have already done)

Let’s jump right in!
