NEW DATE! 5th Grade Yearbook Dedication

Great News!  We have been given an extension for submitting a 5th Grade Yearbook Dedication!  

It is now March 6th!  

Please go to the Yearbook Page for details on how to order a dedication to your special 5th grader!



Need some ideas for your dedication?  


Include a Photo

If space permits, including a photo personalizes a yearbook dedication even more. For a fifth grader, an ideal dedication may be a small collage of school photos from kindergarten through fifth grade or a photo of your child with family members. This photo can be further personalized by superimposing your child's name, fifth grade school year and a brief note of congratulations over the image. Be sure to use a crisp photo that will print clearly in the yearbook.

Use a Quote or Poem

If your child has a favorite book, movie or poem, include a reference to it. These can be humorous or profound, depending on the tone of the dedication and your child's interests. If no quote comes to mind, common options include lines from "Oh, the Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss or quotes from Walt Disney, such as "If you can dream it, you can do it."

Personalize the Congratulations

Many yearbook dedications, while incorporating pictures or graphics, stick with the ordinary notes that state, "Congratulations!" To make the dedication special, personalize why you're congratulating your child. For example, congratulate her on perfect grades, winning a soccer game during the year or a great ballet performance. Your child will be able to remember her accomplishments every time she looks through the yearbook.

Talk to Multiple People

If there is enough room in the dedication, get dedications from multiple people. While parents usually make the dedication themselves, a child is likely to appreciate receiving congratulations from grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors, teachers and other people who are important to them. As an added bonus, each person in the dedication should sign the child's yearbook as well.


Math Tutors Needed

Some classroom supplies at low levels

Seventh District Families,

Congratulations on a successful 100 days of school! 

Based on valuable feedback and the desire to support our teachers in their day to day efforts, the following is a mid-year "wish-list" of specific teacher/grade level requests.  These requests include items that are currently depleted or are at a low supply level. 

If you see fit, please send in the following items to your child's classroom teacher.  This list is fluid and will be updated periodically!  Thank you in advance for your contributions!  Nicole Smith

7DE Library -November

7DE Library Volunteers

It's hard to believe that it is November. Thank you to all the volunteers that have been able to help in the library.  Mrs. Hale truly appreciates it!

The SignUp calendar shows when each class is scheduled based on their homeroom teacher.  You may volunteer when your child is in the library.  You can also volunteer for any class (doesn't have to be with your child) and as often as you want to help.  Mrs. Hale appreciates all the help.  The tasks of the volunteer are to help check in books, check out books, shelve books. They are simple tasks yet it helps sooo much. Mrs. Hale also has some very creative ideas for the year and may need help with creative prep work.

If you know anyone who is interested in volunteering in the library please share the signup link or my email so we can get them started.  I have helped in the 7DE library for 8 yrs.  The kids love seeing their parent or any parent in the library helping out.  It's a fun way to see the kids in action!  If you have any questions please feel free to email me.


Thank you for giving your time to our 7DE students!
