First Day of 7th Grade

 

Welcome to the GSC 7th Grade webpage!

 

 

We are gearing up for Catholic Schools Week!!

  • At the Masses on Sunday, January 31st, you will see student representatives.  After the 11:00 Mass, there will be an Open House at GSC.  Members of Student Council and the National Junior Honor Society will be there to give tours and share their GSC experience with the community.
  • On Monday, we will honor police officers, firefighters, EMTs, veterans, and active duty military at our 9:30 school liturgy.  Please invite any family members or friends that fall into these categories.  See information in the communication envelope or contact Mrs. Blackwell.
  • Students were asked to bring in a donation for Aid For Friends.  The 7th grade is collecting breakfast bars.  We will fill these bags on Tuesday.
  • On Wednesday, we will show our appreciation to our volunteers with a delicious brunch.
  • Thursday is our Grandparent/Special Friend Day.  Play a game of BINGO, visit the Bookfair, and maybe win a prize.
  • Student appreciation day is Friday.  Students will enjoy a hot dog lunch and a movie.  We will conclude CSW with a prayer service.
  • Students are welcome to purchase books at the Book Fair throughout the week.

The 6th grade observed the forces of cohesion and surface tension.  How many paper clips will make this cup of water overflow?  How many drops of water can you fit on a penny?  What was that mystery liquid that reduced the strength of these forces?  Ask a 6th grader.
