Mr. McConville - Mrs. Potter

 Welcome To the Seventh Grade LAL Homepage!

    A new school year, a new vision.  


Welcome to 7th grade ELA!  We are so excited to meet you and for our year ahead together.  We will read and write and think and question and solve and accomplish amazing things this year!  We ask that you arrive to Room 505 each day with an open mind and a willingness to learn and work together.  
In the weeks to come, we will begin to approach many interesting and important topics, ranging from themes and symbolism and characterization in class novels, short stories and poetry to grammatical rules and reference and research guides.  Check this site often, as we will update it in the coming days with useful class information, such as homework, class handouts and links that will come in handy in ELA this year.
We hope you had a wonderfully exciting summer!  Here is to an exciting year together!
All the best,
Mr. McConville and Mrs. Potter
