As per my blog tradition, it is your turn now to pass the torch (so to speak) to next year’s seventh graders by reflecting back on what your seventh grade experience has been like for you, and what they can expect life will be like for them. When I introduce the blog to my new seventh graders for the first time in August, they will read the words of wisdom you have left for them, much like you did at the beginning of this year.
What would a new seventh grader like to know or need to know? What lessons have you learned as you navigated seventh grade? How different is sixth to seventh? Please be honest, candid, and humorous, but please be respectful should you discuss your teachers. How difficult is it to play sports and keep up with the academic load? What about the social scene? Sea Camp? There’s lots to tell. These are just some questions to get you thinking.
I will miss all of you! Promise me you will stop by and visit…..I’ll just be at the other end of the hall! I will always have time to talk books……I can’t wait for all the sequels!!
Happy summer and safe travels!
