7th Grade

Religion:

Parents: I want your children to take responsibility for their assignments, as I know you do too, but realize that they are in transition and continue to need encouragement.  The only real homework that they have for religion class is memory work each Tuesday – with the assigned Bible verses on their assignment sheet that was given at the beginning of the quarter.  I also know that Ms. Vanwey reads the memory work with them on Monday and writes a reminder on the board so there is no excuse for not knowing it – except that the student chooses not to study it.  God’s Word is vital for our minds and hearts and so I would encourage you to talk with your child.  As with every class, there are those who faithfully know their memory and are prepared for class, and there are those who “let it slide,” especially as the school year progresses.  We are nearing the end of this 2nd quarter and there’s “sliding” being done.  Please help your child to realize the importance of responsibility a turning in assignments on time.  Pastor Myers
