Top 10 Moments of 7th Grade
Camp is the highlight of the 7th grade year. You start the year waiting for camp and end the year wishing you could do it again. Camp starts halfway through Monday and ends halfway through Friday. In that time you have all you can eat buffets, fun activities, and tons of free-time. There is only one catch; you have to fill out a 20 page journal.
2. Rusty Museum
The Rusty Museum is not what it sounds like. During the year, you read a book called Uglies. The setting is a Utopia in the future. To them, our civilization was very barbarian, and they call us the Rusties. for the project, you are posing as Pretty historians and have to analyze rusty objects.
3. Monomyth: The Road of Trials Activity
Oh, no! Mrs. Krisfalusy has been taken some evil trolls! Your job is to complete the activities to save her. Will you succumb to Mr. Barr before you even begin? Will you fail the challenges? It is up to you, but if you fail you may never see Mrs. Krisfalusy ever again.

The has been an apocalypse!!! Your job is to broadcast news to the world with weather reports and reporters on the ground!
5. Outsiders Day
In class you will read the outsiders. In this activity which gang will you choose, the Rich Socs or the Poor Greasers? Socs and Greasers compete to see who's gang is the best at Outsiders trivia.
6. Teacher vs. Student Basketball Game
The teacher versus student basketball game is seen by all of the middle school, but it is still a highlight. It is the one sport that the teachers are actually good at, and it was a fast paced game to watch.
7. Mary Poppins Musical
Anyone can watch this musical, but it was a very good performance, and it was worthy of being #7 on the list. The students worked very hard to bring it together, and it was almost the same as the professional version.
