Eighth Grade

Jenni Halley

Welcome to 8th grade!


If you stop in my classroom, you are welcome to pull up a barstool, sit down on the rug or stand at my counter, which is part of my newly implemented flexible seating arrangement. You might see 5th or 6th grade math students studying factors or how to find area, or any number of math topics. Math students also practice facts and study on Khan Academy while using their Chromebooks. 7th and 8th grade social studies students can be found researching various history topics and learning about American History from the 1400’s through present day, or might be practicing geography skills on their Chromebooks.


Our 8th grade homeroom time is spent reading novels and studying various literature pieces. We are busy with all kinds of service projects, including working at the food pantry and serving lunch at the Senior Center. All year is spent preparing for our transition from middle school to high school, including academically, spiritually and socially. We will spend a few months this spring preparing for a class play, including acting, designing sets, and choosing costumes. This is always a fun and exciting way to end the year and bring their time together at St. Gregory’s to a close.
