Seventh & Eighth Grade

Middle School 2017-2018

Foothills Welcomes Ms. Weiler

Our Classroom is located in building #4. 

There is a sign above the door that says 7th/8th Grade.

 

Matthew 5:16-  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

At this age students are expanding their interest and trying out hobbies to see where the Lord has gifted them. Each of these activities, like all things we do, are for the glory of God. So each morning I will ask students what they did last night to Shine, which might include:

Help- Philippians 2:14  Do everything without grumbling or arguing,

Create-Exodus 35:31 and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills

 Be-Psalms 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Learn-Proverbs 4:13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

Do- Ecclesiastes 9:10  Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.

Play- 1Corinithians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

As part of the weekly curriculum this year students will participate in a program called CREATE. They will choose a skill or hobby they would like to learn and write a proposal about how they plan to go about learning. They will fill out and submit a request for supplies and an accountability form to their peers. Brainstorm ideas with your students, examples include a foreign language, drawing skills, music lessons, exploring another culture, learning to sew, cooking through a cook book, and much much more!!!

This year we will be exploring what Digital Citizenship means and how to use technology safely. Then we will begin a coding unit and STEM projects. Students will need to move through all 6 units in the Digital Citizenship Passport prior to getting online for research.

At this time all students have their logins and passwords. Ask ask your student about the lessons!

 We will be using an online grade book through Think Wave.  Be looking for an email with your parent login and password. You can keep up to date on missing assignments, challenging areas for your student and where your child is excelling!
