This Week in Mr. Papet’s Classes:

6th Grade Social Studies (Ancient World History):  We begin the year studying Geography tools and terminology.  I am planning the first Quiz for Friday, 18 August.

7th Grade Social Studies (Civics & Government): We begin the year studying U.S. Geography and will have our first Test Friday – covering the 50 states, regions, state capitals and U.S. Territories.

8th Grade Social Studies (U.S. History): We begin the year studying the Early Americans and will have our first Test Friday on Chapter 1.

6th Grade Math: We will begin Chapter 1 this week – Ratios and Rates.  My goal is to complete a chapter approximately every 2-3 weeks (in each of my Math classes) — which will include 2 quizzes (mid-and end-of chapter) and 1 comprehensive Chapter Test.

7th Grade Math (Pre-Algebra):  We will begin Chapter 1 this week – Real Numbers.  I will also be administering a STAR Math assessment (no studying required) to establish a baseline of Math proficiency to be tracked throughout the year.

8th Grade Math (Algebra):  We will begin Chapter 1 this week – Expressions, Equations and Functions.  I will also be administering a STAR Math assessment (no studying required) to establish a baseline of Math proficiency to be tracked throughout the year.

Let me reiterate my commitment to your child’s academic and spiritual development.  I remain at your service and am available to answer your questions and/or address your concerns as we proceed through what I hope will be a great year for our parish, families and students.

Blessings – Louis Papet
