We had a great week. The kids are getting in the groove and the routine is better established.
We started a new program in religion class called First Steps. It is similar to the "Character Counts" program from long ago.
It emphasizes social skills, group work, peer pressure, how to be a good friend etc. We will tie the program in to our religion class and discuss how all the attributes of a good friend, good teammate, a contributing group member all reflect what God wants for us in our lives.
I will share with you what we come up with for our final 7th grade pledge from our first discussion. It would be great to continue the conversations at home - so we will keep you up to date!
Pics are from our leaf activity in science. I only remembered to take pics of 7C - sorry Murray parents!
