Dear 2021-2022 Seventh Grade Families:
Welcome to Grade 7! I hope this summer will be a time full of fun and relaxation for your family.
Enclosed please find a summer reading list and stationery list. The summer reading list includes three books which are required to be read, one book for Religion and two for Language Arts. Your children will be given an assignment for the required reading when they return to school in September. Please encourage your child to read even beyond the enclosed list and to utilize IXL. It is a valuable tool for keeping up with math and language skills. It is highly recommended that your child use this program throughout the summer to not only maintain, but to increase proficiency in these academic areas.
The items on the stationery list are to be purchased by you over the summer. Also, please note that all book sox purchased should be jumbo size to accommodate the larger textbooks.
As you know, it is equally important to keep your child mentally active as it is to keep them physically active during the summer months.
Have an enjoyable summer and see you in September!
God bless you,
Mrs. Karen Higgins
