Mr. Goldner - 7th Grade 

2018-2019 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 7th grade religion. I also co-teach the theater arts program with Ms. Rickert.

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 you to a variety of literary genres. 

In 7th grade religion, we study the life and ministry of Jesus, the early Christian church, moral decision making and family life.

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 7th grade religion homework, 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!
