Seventh grade rules are based on values such as: honesty, respect, and responsibility. We expect students to demonstrate good behavior, inside and outside of the class. We want a school free of bullying.
To develop confidence and self-esteem. To create an educational learning environment that promotes confidence and respect. To look for preventive methods more than corrective. We use Behavior contracts, parent meetings, Incident Refelction Form (IRF) and “WAPOOF”. Seventh grade teachers are committed to do the following:
To promote effective communication between parents and teachers. To develop a sense of community service. To develop writing and reading skills across the curriculum. We believe our main mission is to teach students to be life-long learners.

After SIX tardies- a phone call to the parents and a “Why Am I Late” reflection sheet is given to the student. After ELEVEN tardies- 90 minutes of restitution (community service) is completed. This is to get the students to realize after being late they will give some time back to teachers. After FIFTEEN tardies- Fry will host a 45 minute walking club at 7:00 a.m. once a bimester. There will be a parent meeting to go along with this. After twenty tardies in one bimester- you will be suspended in- school for one day. IF you have been a member of the walking club twice and receive your third invitation then you will be suspended in-school for one day. Tardy Policy
We regularly hold parent/ teacher meetings because: We are concerned about our students. We want to work with parents to help students be successful during the school year. We want to keep you informed about your child’s progress in school using power school and our page in sharepoint.

SERVICE LEARNING PROJECT Área de Nefrología del Hospital Civil This year our Service Learning takes place at the Hospital Civil in the Nephrology Pediatric unit (renal insufficiency), under the charge of Dr. Jacob Sandoval. This is the area where kids with severe kidney problems are treated by dialysis or hemodialysis. Some of them are awaiting a transplant. The Nephrology Pediatric Unit treats approximately 100 patients, starting from newborn to age sixteen. This group may vary from patients who need special attention daily or by appointment, and their parents receive a very low income.
SERVICE PROGRAM We have visits to The Hospital Civil, by small advisories, one each month. Cheer boxes for Christmas and San Valentine´s Day. 2 bake sales. (October and April) Collect personal care stuff to bring in each visit to the hospital. We are hoping to raise money for a Hemodialisis machine for the kids area. This is a long term goal because it costs 250 thousand pesos. Or help to remodeling the area at the hospital. Look for special activities like the t-shirts design and the booths at rec-night to collect money to buy titanium connectors, catheters and transfer guide, medications and enterex renal Goal 35,000 pesos.
