Welcome to 7th grade!
The 7th grade class focuses on building our vocabulary and also enhancing our writing skills by writing personal narratives, argumentative essays, informative essays, research papers, and persuasive essays.

- Participating in essay contests
- Creating board games to learn vocabulary
- Theology of the Body
