7 Silver Team
Welcome to the 7 Silver Team!
7th Grade Silver Team Newsletter: Week of January 20 - 24
After School Homework Help: After school homework help (Monday through Thursday, 2:45 – 3:45 pm) with Ms. Schanke (typically Tuesdays and Thursdays) and Mr. Johnson (typically Mondays and Wednesdays) in their rooms, Room 605 and Room 703, respectively. This opportunity is a chance to receive extra support in math or just another place to complete assignments. Please remember that it is not to be used or considered as punishment! Please give us a heads up if you’re sending your student so we may have an idea on what they need to work. Thanks.
Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday: There is no school on Monday, January 20, 2020 in honor of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Please enjoy the long weekend with your families!
Meeting of the Minds Instruction: During access classes this week, students will be taught how to interpret Emergenetics Student Reports for their Learning Style and Behavior preferences based on the questionnaire taken earlier this school year. Students should better understand their own preferences as well as their classmates’ preferences when working with partners or small groups.
Professional Learning Community (PLC) Late Start: There will be a two-hour delayed start on Wednesday, January 29th. This time allows teachers, teams and academic departments opportunities to collaborate to share “best practices” and improve instruction.

Quiz and Test Retake Policy: I certainly permit retakes. It is important that the students attain the knowledge. Students need to sign out their quiz or test from me, make corrections on a separate paper, have parents sign their corrections, staple their corrections to their original test or quiz. Upon completion of corrections, students will be eligible to take a retake on an alternate, but similar, assessment.
