"I'm new here too."

Throughout seventh grade, students learn to write in a variety of genres, from the letters of introduction they write in the opening days of the year to the novels and spoken word pieces that close out the year.

 

Today, students wrote welcome notes to new faculty, building on clues they've learned about each teacher's history and passions, and injecting plenty of their own personalities along the way. Personalized bracelets completed the gesture for a lesson that combined literacy skills with leadership and community-building.
