7th graders at Our Lady of the Lake School learn how to be leaders from a Service Learning Curriculum through the Missionary Discipleship Institute. Students also perform the Living Stations of the Cross during Lent. We dive into medieval history and explore the significant science, arts, and technology contributions made during that time period. We also explore our state's rich history, from its beginnings as a territory to the contemporary Washington state many of us call home. In spring, the students take their learning on the road, seeing and experiencing different parts of Washington. 7th graders will grapple with various literary themes as well as crafting informative and argumentative writing.
Each human thumbprint is unique, just as each 7th grade student is unique. To begin our year, the OLL 7th graders recreated their thumbprint pattern with many sentences that detail what makes them unique. Watch the slideshow to see them all!
