What a perfect time to direct this newfound confidence towards peer leadership. Whether it is leading by appropriately navigating social media or having the confidence to be an “includer”, 7th grade at The Social Class is a year of reinforcing and building upon the skills acquired in our 6th curriculum. The 7th grade curriculum will focus on: Cell phone and social media essentials, making introductions, conversation skills, dining out, family manners, common courtesies, RSVP’s and writing thank you notes.
