    7th Grade Foundations for Success

    A Brief Description of this course:
    Foundations is a course that all 7th grade students will take for a half year. During the other half of their year students will take General Music. This course is taught every other day opposite their Physical Education class. During this course we will discuss the following units-
    • Listening Skills
    • Social Skills
    • Character Education
    • Growth Mindset
    • Effective Effort
    • Career Exploration 

    We believe that all of these topics allow students to become more self-aware of their strengths and also things they feel they need to work on in order to be their best self. Exploring these topics allows for discussion as a group on what can be challenging about making good decisions and what action steps are needed to continue to make good decisions in their middle school life and beyond.
