7th Grade

October 2, 2018

MAP testing is finished, and we are back to a regular schedule!  Half of the students have completed a Fall tree art project. The rest are due this Friday. I hope you will all be able to see them on display in the classroom.  Students were able to type up their paragraphs in Technology class yesterday. We will do some final editing and turn them in.  Be sure to turn in any pledges you still have from the Jog-a-thon.

Happy October,

The students have worked hard this week on MAP testing.  They have all learned a process for taking vocabulary notes and should be studying words for Vocabulary and Religion. They have completed a rough draft of a paragraph on study skills and are learning strategies for revising. We will continue work on these after testing. They have also been writing in journals. Their first Reading Response journal entry is due Friday. I was very impressed with the way they participated in a fire drill the other day.  They were silent and serious. Great job being role models for the younger students!

Your children have given me a warm welcome to the school and have helped me in many ways! They deserve extra hugs for dealing with two substitutes in two weeks!









My name is Ms. Patti Melton, and I will be the substitute teacher until Mrs. Poteet returns in mid-October.  I come to you with 29 years of experience teaching middle school at St. Thomas More in Lynwood. I have an endorsement in English and an Administrative certificate. I served as the Vice Principal for 13 years.  I am excited to be here!

I have two boys. Travis is 26 and recently engaged. He currently works for Tesla. Josh is 22 and is currently a student at St. Martins Univiersity studying Business.  Both boys attended St. Thomas More School, Biship Blanchet High School, and St. Martins University.  I also have 2 cats and 4 chickens. I like to knit and do paper crafts.

I believe study skills help all students to be successful.  Teaching some of these skills will be a focus while I am here.  All students will have notes to study.

I hope I have an opportunity to meet you all!  Please let me know if you have any questions!
