7th Grade News/Info




Tuesday, February 13 from 3:30-4:45

Wednesday, February 14 from 5:45-7:15

Dear Parents/Guardians of Severance Middle School 7th grade students:

Our team will hold an open house for Student-led Conferences on Tuesday, February 13th from 3:30-4:45 and Wednesday, February 14th from 5:45-7:15.  Please do not arrive later than 4:45 on Tuesday or 7:15 on Wednesday to start your conference since they are over at 5:00 and 7:30, respectively.

Student-led conferences are an exciting change from traditional parent-teacher conferences.  Rather than meeting with individual teachers, your child will be in charge of the conference! By giving students this leadership role, they are able to take ownership of their work and accomplishments.  Students will be sharing with you their accomplishments from each class, as well as their goals for the rest of the year. Teachers will circulate to discuss how your child is doing in each subject and will briefly identify strengths and weaknesses that they see in their class.  

Remember, your child MUST attend this conference with you! Conference times are limited to approximately 15 minutes in order to accommodate all students and parents who attend.  You may not see every teacher during this time frame, so please feel free to contact specific teachers by email or phone to address additional concerns. If you feel that you need more time or have additional questions after conferences, please write us a note and request an additional meeting or phone conference.

PLEASE NOTE:  We have already contacted parents of students who we feel will benefit more from a conference with their team of core teachers.  These scheduled conferences will be held at different times each day.  If you haven’t been contacted for a scheduled conference, we feel that the open house format will be sufficient for your student.  If you are not attending the open house, your student’s portfolio will be sent home for your student to review with you.

**Teachers’ dinner break is from 5:00-5:30 on Tuesday and 5:15-5:45 on Wednesday. Families will not be able to meet with teachers during these times.  

Thanks!  We look forward to seeing you!

Mrs. Bienvenu,  Mrs. Callan, Ms. Eudeikis, Mrs. Glitzke, Mr. Love,  Mrs. Neely,

Mrs. Rolf and Ms. Simmons

3rd Quarter Reminders

Happy New Year Parents/Guardians!

The 7th grade team is excited to begin 2018! As we start the second part of the school year, we want to remind you of a few things that will help your child be successful as they continue in 7th grade. 

1.  Please send your child to school prepared with supplies for the new semester.  Students are especially in need of more pencils and notebook paper, as well as a set of colored pencils both here and at home.  Now is a good time to re-supply!

2.  Remember that Homework Club is available Monday through Thursday from 3:05-3:30.  Students can use this time to do homework, work on missing work, get extra help, etc.  Please utilize this time if you feel your child needs it!

Remember, you can always call or email your child’s teachers if you have any questions.  We look forward to a great second half of the year!
