Mr. Goldner - 7th Grade 

 

This is my first year at Saint Dominic School and I am very excited to join this dynamic community! 

I teach 7th and 8th grade English and 7th and 5th grade Religion. I am also excited to help with the Theater Arts program.

The aim of 7th and 8th grade English at Saint Dominic's is to extend your knowledge about language, to develop and refine oral and written literacy skills, and to introduce you to a variety of literary genres. 

Below, students, parents and guardians can find homework information for every 7th and 8th grade English class, every day. Grammar, writing and literature are all combined under English homework.  Please keep up to date with your homework as the mastery of the study of English literature and composition requires daily study and practice!

On this page too you will find all 7th grade homeroom information and 7th grade religion homework. Please check it often.

5th grade Religion can find their homework on Mrs. Rickert's Page!

May you have an exciting and productive year!
