                                      7th grade Language Arts 2018-19
The seventh grade Language Arts class continues to develop and refine thinking, writing, listening, and speaking skills as students read and respond to pieces of literature.  Vocabulary and weekly spelling words will be included within these areas.  The study of grammar, mechanics, and standard usage continues.  Students practice using a process of writing that includes prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing.   In addition, students demonstrate effective listening and speaking skills by giving presentations and participating in discussions.  Although your grade in language arts will be based on some average of work completed in each of these areas, good habits, a great attitude, motivation to learn and a focus on improvement will be taken into account as well.

5th - 8th grade French (Not currently teaching) 
Bonjour, mes amis!  Bienvenue a la classe de francais!  Je m'appelle Madame Fawcett!  Ici, on trouve de l'information pour chaque classe et les devoirs pour la semaine.  Bonne chance avec vos etudes!
5th Grade French  The 5th grade French class is an introductory course which exposes students to the study of a foreign language.  Students learn basic French expressions, vocabulary, and the influence France has had upon North America.
6th Grade French - 6th grade French meets only during activity period as available for each individual student.  Vocabulary and common phrases and statements are reviewed. 
7th Grade French -  As a seventh grade student, you are required to take foreign language classes for one semester.  For nine weeks, you will be introduced to the French language and its culture.  During this time, you will be learning basic vocabulary and creating basic sentence structures.  It is hoped that as a result of this language experience, you will have developed a lifelong interest in foreign languages and cultures.    
8th Grade French The 8th grade French class continues to build on the themes discussed throughout the 5th-7th grade years.  The class will focus on the study of France and its influences around the world.  Studying a foreign language is an integral part of your education.  Not only does it provide you with the opportunity to learn a second language but exposes you to the history and culture of other nations.  Such exposure will help you to develop an awareness of and a better appreciation for man's interrelatedness and the global community.  The goals of this first focus are for you to gain exposure to the French language and the culture and history of its people as well improve your ability to adapt to new situations.
                                       In addition, the class will focus on expanding your French vocabulary as well as introducing new grammar structures. You can look forward to developing your vocabulary and basic language skills (speaking, reading, writing and comprehension).  In addition, you will be able to draw upon these skills so as to take risks with ease.  This class will introduce you to the mental discipline and study skills necessary for success in further language study.  It is advised that you perfect these skills and transfer them to other areas of study.  The goals of this second focus are to establish a foundation of vocabulary and basic foreign language skills, to acquire the study skills necessary for success in any foreign language study, to stimulate interest in further foreign language study, and to demonstrate the value of knowledge of a foreign language in today's world.
