This week, we will be covering the Circle of Grace Curriculum required by the Archdiocese of Omaha. Students in 7th grade will be learning about bullying and how it is contrary to God’s plan and a sin. Students will also learn about the power they have as bystanders to bullying, and how they can use that power to aid those that are targets of negative behavior.
The 8th grade will be learning about the difference between stress and pressure, and healthy ways to deal with situation which may place negative pressure, such as peer pressure, on them.
Parents can expect to see emails with more information the archdiocese wants you to have.
Welcome to 7A!

Welcome to Homeroom 7A! I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you. A few things:
Our specials classes (PE, Art, Music, Multimedia, Spanish, and Homeroom) will rotate on an “A” day, “B” day, and “C” day. PE classes will be on “B” days so students will need to have tennis shoes for those days.
We will have a homeroom period on “C” days. Most of the time, this will be a study hall. We might also use that time for classroom meetings, social-emotional lessons, etc.
Remember, you are allowed to pre-order lunches through the Blackbaud app.
Thank you for sharing your children with us!
7A – Happy New Year
January 4, 2022
Happy New Year to the 7th and 8th grade students and their families. I hope that 2022 is off to a good start for you all and I’m excited to welcome the students back to class.

In Grade 7 religion we will be looking at the New Testament. We will begin by talking about divine revelation and talking about how God reveals Himself in scripture and Tradition. We will then look at the distinct roles of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the Blessed Trinity. Then, we will look at how the Gospels relate the human life of Jesus.
A tip to help your student: read the gospels or talk about your favorite stories from them.
In grade 8, we will begin to look at the Early Church, including Peter and Paul. We will then discuss how the Church was largely in secret because of Roman persecution. We will end the unit talking about Constantine, the legalization of Christianity, and the spread of monasticism.
Tip to help your student: Talk about how we can share our faith in the public, as this was something the early Christians could not too. We should not take it for granted!

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year! I’m looking forward to seeing all the students in grades 7 and 8. Please put on your calendar the Parent Meeting scheduled for August 24 at 7 PM.
I am a husband and father with three boys. I enjoy spending time outside, reading, grilling and cooking (but I don't bake), singing, and cheering on the Nebraska Cornhusker Football team.
