Counselors Connect with Seventh-Grade Scholars

The SFJH counseling staff went into all 7th grade College and Career Awareness classes last week and discussed preparing for college and future careers, developing time management skills, and making good choices.

 The counselors enjoyed listening to student discussions, playing games (college and career corn hole), and leading other group activities.  It not only gave counselors an opportunity to talk to students about important subjects, but it also let the students meet their school counselors and start feeling comfortable with them.

Students had to put the golf ball in a Dixie cup and drop it off the roof. The materials provided were straws, rubber bands, Elmer’s glue, toothpicks, and tape.

Lost at Sea

Seventh grade students in Miss Dannelly’s English classes tested their survival skills with a “Lost at Sea” activity. Students had to practice their close reading skills as they read through a scenario in which they were stranded on the ocean after their ship went down. Students were given a list of fifteen items they had to rank from most important to least important as they used their critical thinking skills to determine what was essential for their survival.
