7th Grade Literature:
The 7th grade summer reading project requires the students to read A Clatter of Jars by Lisa Graff. They will not need to bring the book to school so it is more than fine to borrow the book from the library, rather than buying it. When the student has finished reading the book, they should begin the summer reading project while the story is still fresh in their minds. Please read through the project rubric carefully before beginning. Below, you will also find a blank template. Simply download that template to fill in for the character of your choice. Don't forget to include citations for all quotes you include from the book! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me at rvick@sbsenfield.org. I will be checking my email periodically throughout the summer.

7th/8th Grade Religion: 
The Junior High students are required to do 12 service hours per year as a part of their Religion requirement, which is equivalent to four service hours per trimester. No service hours are required to be completed over the summer. However, if you would like to get ahead, you may complete some or all of your hours over the summer. If you choose to do so, please be sure to print out a copy of the service hour form, as you will need signatures from the leaders of the service projects. A detailed explanation of these service hours will be passed out during the first week of school, along with some suggestions for places to complete these service hours. However, if you are to get started this summer, please be aware that helping out family members does not count as service. Additionally, anything in which you are paid for is not service either. One easy way that many students complete some of their service hours is by becoming an altar server at their parish or by joining the school choir, which sings at Mass once a month during the school year.
