7th grade Social Studies

In 7th grade this year along with having Religion with the 8th grade and using the 8th grade book the 7th grade will also be studying Kansas History and world geography in Social Studies. Most of their geography content will be on Moby Max with supplements added as needed.

7th/8th grade Religion

This year 7th and 8th grades will have Religion together and will use the 8th grade book which covers Church history. They will have a stewardship assignment due at the end of each quarter and we are currently working on learning the Magnificat.


6th Grade Social Studies and Religion

  6th grade is using Studies Weekly this year in World History with additional resources from our World History text book. It is important that they keep up with their weekly assignments in this class since they do much of this at their own pace with weekly tests. Check with your student to make sure they have handed in the weekly paper assignments and have completed the online portion of their assignments. They may work online at home on these assignments. 

   In Religion we will be studying the Old Testament. Student also have a stewardship assignment for each nine weeks and a list of prayers that they need to memorize. For the first nine weeks we will be learning the Prayer to the Holy Spirit. Information on stewardship and prayers is in the student's religion folder.

  In February the sixth grade will be attending the diocesan vocation fair at Magdalen. More information on this will be available around the first of the year.

8th grade Religion and Social Studies

   8th grade is studying the History of the Church and reviewing the lives of the saints in Religion this year. We will be saying the Magnificat prayer everyday. Students should know this prayer by heart before the end of the year. 

In Social Studies we are looking at American History from the Constitution to early 1900's with emphasis on the Civil War era.
