EIGHTH GRADE OVERVIEW

Eighth grade is both challenging and exciting as students work to complete their final year of middle school. By this time, students have grown and matured in their organizational abilities, study habits, self-confidence, and social skills. They are planning and preparing for high school, and continue the Gloria Dei Middle School experience with a strong, well-rounded curriculum.

Core classes include Physical Science, American History, Language Arts/Literature, and Math. Additionally, Spanish 1B is offered as a core class, provided that prerequisite requirements have been met.

Students have the opportunity to graduate from Gloria Dei with up to three high school credits. High school credit may be earned upon successful completion of Algebra 1, Geometry, and/or Spanish 1.

Students will also participate in a variety of resource classes every week - including Art, Music, Library/Research, Physical Education, Computers, and Novel Study.

Additionally, a variety of quarterly classes are offered throughout the year in eighth grade, such as Geography, Bible/Religious Studies, Physical Conditioning, Yearbook, Forensic Science, Intro to Neuroscience, Creative Writing, and Money Matters. Elective offerings may change from year to year.

Eighth grade students participate in a variety of school and community outreach projects. Eighth graders also have the opportunity to hold office and participate in the Student Council Association (SCA). In addition, students have several special activities and field trips to enjoy during their eighth grade year.

Math Lab, Master’s Singers, and Arts Academy classes are also offered as after-school activities.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact the school office, or any of the middle school teachers, with any additional questions.

Seventh Grade Overview

Welcome to the seventh-grade team! We are an active and dynamic group.  Students will have more challenging classes and responsibilities this year.  Our mornings begin with the Pledge of Allegiance, prayer, and devotional time.  Middle school Chapel is every Thursday.  Seventh grade core classes consist of Language Arts, Civics, Life Science, and a math class.  Math classes include Course Two, Pre-Algebra, or Algebra One.  As an elective choice, students can pick Spanish 1A or Novel Study.  Other electives that our students enjoy include Bible Study, Digital Citizenship, Geography, Personal Finance, Hand Bells, Physical Conditioning, Health, Science and Art enrichment classes.  Elective classes rotate each quarter, so our students are always being motivated.  Resource classes for seventh grade are Library, Computers, Music, and Art.  Study skills and organizational strategies are emphasized as students progress through the academic year. Engaging guest speakers, going on enriching field trips, and participating in various group and individual activities add to the vigorous seventh grade year. Seventh graders can participate in after school clubs and student activities, service projects, and leadership roles.  This is an exciting and productive year for our students.
