Mr. Goldner - 7th Grade 

2019-2020 School YeaR


Hello and welcome to the 7th grade homework page at Saint Dominic School in Eagle Rock, California! I am Mr. Goldner, the 7th grade homeroom teacher. At Saint Dominic's, I teach upper school English (7th and 8th) and Theater Arts.

The aim of upper school English at Saint Dominic's is to extend your knowledge about language, to develop and refine oral and written literacy skills, and to introduce students 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 class information and important school information. Please check it often! Homework will be posted by 4 PM each day.

I look forward to working with all of you to meet your learning goals. May you have an exciting and productive year!
