What will we see tonight?
What should we expect this year?
What is different from High Rock, or 6th grade, in general?
What should we expect tonight?

to meet Pollard faculty and staff;
to "live a day" in your child(ren)'s schedule;
to hear about curriculum and standards;
to experience our commitment to the academic, social & emotional growth of every child;
to leave knowing your child is cared for;
to learn about the many opportunities in 7th grade.
What should we expect this year?
7th Grade Students:
move from concrete thinking to more abstract;
have a desire for more independence;
are often erratic and inconsistent in their behavior;
are easily offended and are sensitive to criticism of personal shortcomings;
act out unusually, or display drastic behavior at times;
want to know and feel that significant adults, including parents and teachers, love and accept them; need frequent affirmation;
are fiercely loyal to peer group values; sometimes cruel or insensitive to those outside the peer group;
confront hard moral and ethical questions;
How is this
different from grade 6?
More independence in clusters and electives, with clear expectations;
Engaging in debate and dialogue about current events more frequently;
Increased self-advocating for needs or concerns;
Additional opportunities for student voice and involvement in school-based decision making
More frequent trips and enrichment experiences

Prepare the child
for the path...
Not the path
for the child.
