7th Grade Learning Environment

​Welcome Back-to School!

Dear 7th grade Parents,

Welcome!  A new school year is now upon us!  I look forward to meeting and getting to know your children.  Part of our community building is realizing and approaching each other as a classroom family and figuring out how to effectively work as a team.  In the first few weeks will be tacking this task head on.

I am the mother of three adult children and happily married to my best friend- my husband.  I am also a grandmother of an 18 month old (My heart leaps!).  I have taught in Catholic schools for all my 15 years of teaching.  All at the junior high level. This is my fifth year at Our Lady of Grace. It is indeed a joy to be able to teach young people.

In the coming months, the 7th grade will continue to grow as a school community.  We will begin setting the classroom environment by setting the standards by which
our classroom can be successful.  The students will participate in several activities to help them to identify the characteristics of an effective classroom.  In addition, they will able to interact and share a little bit about themselves.  I


The classroom website is housed on the school's main site: olg.org > Classrooms > Seventh Grade- Mrs. Franklin.  Here you will be able to peek into the happenings in the classroom as well as you will find a link to the 7th grade Homework Hotline.  Please note that assignments on the hotline is populated by information as reported by the students. Students are still expected to keep track of their own assignments. 

7th grade is an exciting place to be!  I look forward to seeing all of you at Back to School Night which is scheduled for Tuesday, August 27th.  Rotations will begin in the 7th grade classroom at 6:30 pm.  I will send home a copy of the schedule.  

Yours in Christ,
Tori Franklin
