MRS. HILL'S HIGHLIGHTS
Welcome to 7th grade Religion. This will be an exciting year for your children! It is my hope that as Children of God we will all grow each and every day to serve the Lord and be his voice and hands in the world.
THIS NINE WEEKS~
Welcome to Fourth Nine Weeks Mania!!! Wow, how time flies, when you are busy. This nine weeks we will complete some of the most important concepts in our 7th grade curriculum. Our sacraments packet is now complete and the students will take that final test at the beginning of April. We will also finish our study of the season of Lent. I know that the children have taken great joy in completing their own personal Stations of the Cross booklet! These are so special to them, and I hope that they will share them or pray with them when they feel the need to get closer to Jesus. Another large task this quarter is our study of the Mass. The students are making a Mass folder with the Order of the Mass, vestments and vessels used at Mass, and a Nicene Creed study guide. We will have a Test on this right before we go away for Easter.
Thanks to all of you for sending in the Theology of the Body parent slip. We will begin our Morality/Sexuality Unit when we return from the Easter break, and then it is on to a final chapter in our text about the Book of Revelation, and Our Blessed Mother. My Exam Review will most likely be given to the students on May 1. We will work on these in class, and the students may begin correcting them as soon as they have them finished and I have given them points for completion.
Some other things happening are: we will meet with our Prayer Partners for the last time on April 25, and on April 28, we will attend our final 7/8 grade CLASS MASS in the morning and participate in the final PepRally that afternoon. Please have your child write down the Test Calendar that is posted in our hallway !!! It is full of information that you will find helpful.
Happy Spring to All, and a Blessed Lent/Easter Season ~
