7th Grade Language Arts
SpringBoard is the English Language Arts adopted curriculum for Tacoma Middle Schools. I find it challenging, motivating, and I look forward to everything it has to offer! (Having been on the adoption committee, I feel very confident in the program.)
The Grade 7 theme is Choices. (Grade 6 is Changes and Grade 8 is Challenges.)
Ask to see your child's planner for information about our latest assignments, projects, books... At 2:40 every day we hear the "Planner Bell." Students in all classes take out their planners and fill in necessary information to keep their planners up to date.
Students and parents often ask about doing extra to get ahead... Please see the Homework Tab to view lots of ideas. (Remember that Extra Credit is only if all your work is turned in; it is not to make up missed assignments.)
