Seventh Grade

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 contemporary Washington state. 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.
