Welcome to Grade 7 with Mr. Jeffrey and Ms. Kim
New!! For those interested in MUN at Heritage International School, a new website was published over May Break. You can find it at www.munheritage.weebly.com! Check it out!
May is starting to look like a very busy month for Grade 7 students.
Important Dates for May:
May 7th - 9th Arabic Exams for all students. Refer to the Arabic Exam Schedule.
May 14th is the Science Fair.
May 16th Gauss Mathematics Contest
May 23rd No School
This year the Science Fair is scheduled for May 14th, 2013. Students should be starting to think of what they want to test as their experiment as some projects will take longer to evaluate than others.
On May 16th, students in Grade 7 will be participating in the Gauss Mathematics Contest. This contest is open to schools around the world and is hosted by Waterloo University in Ontario, Canada. On May 16th, students from around the world will be participating in this contest. All students in Grade 7 will be participating. See the mathematics page for more information on student preparation for this contest.
In addition to all these exciting academic activities for students, they are reminded that Final Exams are quickly approaching. On May 7th, 2013, Final Exam study packages will be distributed. These packages will outline all the material students must study prior to the exam. The exam schedule is as follows:
June 9th - English Exam
June 10th - Social Studies Exam
June 11th - Science Exam
June 12th - Mathematics Exam
Students are reminded that the Canadian Koshk is open during morning break and the first half of secondary lunch. This is the ONLY time that you can print assignments and make purchases. So, if you forgot your pen, stop by the Koshk and fulfill all your stationary needs.
Remember, success in grade 7 comes largely from an internal sense of responsibility and developing good work habits. Keep this in mind as you work through the year. Good habits make the work easy, bad habits can hinder your ability to complete your assignments on time or your ability to study for a test!
