Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year

Welcome to 7th grade.
Welcome back for our 8th grade families.
 
Please stay engaged in your learning.
Its getting more complicated.
It will take some extra effort to continue to succeed in these last 2 years at Kahlil Gibran.
 
These 7th/8th grade years, 5 days a week you will have 5 teachers and 5 subject areas.  In addition, there are 3 other classes that you will take just 1,2, or 3 times a week.
 
You can handle these changes.  You are older, more independent, and more responsible for creating your own schedule.
 
PARENTS and Guardians....   
ask to see their math notebook and mathwork once every week.  If they can't explain what problems they were working on that week, than they need extra support and structure and scheduling help from you.
 
STUDENTS....     keep an organized notebook of your work in each subject area class....
 
Stay positive.  Stay active.  Find a healthy balance for your daily schedule that includes
school work, family time, personal activities, and time with friends.  
 
For math units, concepts, skills....    
a simple google search can bring you to many helpful middle school math pages.
 
check out emathinstruction.com
look into desmos.com
always free is khanacademy.org
not free is dreambox.com
 
a nice resource is mathwords.com
besides math....   read a book for fun, learn some basic computer programming, play a strategy based game like chess, get better at a second language....
 
See you in the classroom.
