Announcements

Dear Seventh Grade Families,

Welcome back everyone! And a special welcome to Ethan. We are excited to have you in our class this year. 

This year we will be communicating by my email: jnealon2@gmail.com and mrsnealon@olvuxbridge.com. We will be getting a new school website soon and it is going to be much more general and user friendly. I am always available by email and am available for meetings by appointment.

Seventh grade is a big transitional year. We are getting the students ready for high school. Organization and time management are a must. Usually, assignments are given well in advance and kids have to balance their busy schedules of schoolwork, activities, sports, and social lives. They have to figure out when they can put the time in. The assignments are too big to wait until the night before.

Seventh grade is a time when students are given more responsibility and more is expected of them. They begin to become the leaders of the school. The younger ones look up to them. I have a very high behavior expectation for my seventh graders. I expect any student of mine to assist any teacher/aide/visitor/younger student with anything when asked in a joyful, Christlike manner. Nothing makes me prouder.

This is my first year teaching religion and my main goal is to try to instill a love of God and a desire for Heaven. In Language Arts we will work on perfecting the 5 paragraph essay, deliver speeches, and study grammar. We will read high quality literature covering many different genres including fiction, non fiction, plays, poems, speeches, and short stories. 

This year the 7th and 8th graders are continuing to serve the seniors lunch at the Uxbridge Senior Center on Fridays. The seniors love seeing the kids so much and our kids love it too! Also, we are taking the kids to the Uxbridge Library every other week. j Permission slips will be sent home soon.

I look forward to seeing you all as the year goes on.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Nealon



GOOGLE CLASSROOM

OLV is excited to use Google Classroom.  Over the course of the school year, we will be slowly transitioning from placing student/family information on the OLV website to using Google Classroom to communicate with current students and families.  It's a work in progress, but the teachers have embraced learning a new system and are using it more and more each day.  When a student login is used, the student and family can see all information important to that student on one screen.  There is an assignment calendar and a 'stream' where assignments and announcements can be posted.  Students can also set their devices to receive notifications and reminders based on the Google Classroom postings.  From what OLV has learned, parents get the best view and most up to date information when using the student login.  Parent/Guardian users receive only a Google generated update periodically.  Students know the procedure is to share their usernames and passwords with their parents.  If a parent has difficulty logging in as a student, please let me know and I will fix that for you as soon as possible.
