6:00 – 6:30 = A reasonable time to wake up 7:12 – 7:30 = Average bus arrival time Not too much of a change in timing STARTING YOUR DAY EARLIER
3 teams – Fusion, Phoenix and Synergy You will not eat with the other 7 th grade teams You will get to know the people in your classes better TEAMS
Different for each team All of the teachers are different, so dont dread having a bad teacher Teachers dont know/care if you have homework in other subjects TEACHERS
Combinations are received the first day Top or bottom – both have their pros and cons Half sized lockers – have an organization plan! Takes no more than a week to master LOCKERS
6 day cycle – pretty simple, easy to understand 1A, 2B, 3B, 4B, 5A, 6A 3 minutes between each class to transition Science hallway is usually the furthest away SWITCHING CLASSES
Depends on the classes you take Not really a lot of a difference Not an overload of work HOMEWORK
6 DAY ROTATION SCHEDULE – NOT AS DIFFICULT AS IT SEEMS
3 periods of lunch – Early lunch, middle lunch and late lunch 3 lines to choose from – hot food line (A lunch), sandwich line (premade or ordered) and the snack line (pizza). Lunch is eaten with your 8 th grade opposite team (7-C and 8-C) LUNCH
Most rehearsals are held during the R/A period Bands: Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Jam Band, Jazz Band, Drumline, and Mallets Chorus: Young Mens Vocal Ensemble, Choraliers, and Middlemasters Orchestra: String Ensemble BANDBAND, CHORUS AND ORCHESTRACHORUSORCHESTRA
Changing – you only have until the bell, around three minutes Be quick and dont waste time – you will be marked late if you are not out when they are taking role Have an extra pair of longer pants because it may be cold if you go outside GYM CLASS
Assemblies are held in the auditorium You will sit in the chairs that are in there – not on the floor like you usually do On two days in your schedule you will have core block – you will either continue with your arts class or meet with your team for activities ASSEMBLIES/CORE BLOCK
