Welcome to Seventh Grade! We are looking forward to a year of learning and growing together!
For the first term, we will be reading and writing memoirs for English Language Arts. Our class novel is Red Scarf Girl, a memoir of a Chinese woman who was a young girl during the Cultural Revolution. In Science, students will learn about atoms, elements, and the periodic table, then use that information to experiment with chemical interactions. In Social Studies, students will learn about how history is interpreted using multiple sources. Our Field Studies include a canoe trip; a visit to the Cass Community Center, which includes a bike trip to Belle Isle; and a play, A Christmas Carol, at Meadowbrook Theater.
Students worked very hard cleaning the Flint River for "Chatfield Loves Lapeer". Tires were donated to Cass Community Service in Detroit for their Green Program.
