Gafaru – 7/8th – Week of 4/6

Teacher: Gafaru (


Good Morning All, 


The 7/8th grade team wants to make sure y’all are safe and busy throughout this time so please feel free to email us or send a dojo message if you need anything. In an effort to keep you all busy we have decided that along with the weekly work we have been adding onto Google Classroom we will also be hosting live activity sessions. Each teacher will be hosting a session for their particular subject so feel free to join along and invite a friend. This week’s schedule is as follows: 


Monday: 1:00-2:00 Quizizz with Miss Walker 

Tuesday: 12:00- 12:30 – Quizizz with Mr. Zyla 

Wednesday: 11:00- 11:30 – Kahoot Zoom with Mrs. Morales 

      1:00 – 2:00 Quizizz with Miss Walker 

Thursday: 1:00 -2:00 7th Grade Zoom with Ms.G

  2:0-3:00 8th Grade Zoom with Ms. G


Each teacher will post their links on their Google Classrooms so make sure you have joined all the teacher’s online classrooms. Let us know if you have any ideas for activities that you want us to host. 


We are all expecting that students participate in as many learning opportunities as possible, and to be engaged with all of their teachers and classes. We recommend at least 30 minutes of engagement with each subject every weekday.  We are continuing to monitor student’s progress to see how prepared they will be for next year and to see how we can provide additional supports. Please reach out to us if it has been difficult to do this.


SHOUTOUTS: This week the team wants to shoutout Destiny Brito, April Tierney, Nayleisha Williams, Xander Cruz, Gabriel Nieves, and Lyara Rodriguez from the 7th Grade. We also want to shout out Dioanna Davis and Felix Santiago from 8th grade. These students have all participated in some way with each class and will, therefore, receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card. We are happy to see their work and would like to continue to reward students for their work during this time.


Each week any students who participate in all 4 of their teacher’s online classes will be entered into a raffle to win a $5 Amazon Gift Card. We will pick one winner from each grade every week.  


Other Important Information: 

Food Distribution: This week you can pick up food from Donahue from 10:00 – 12:30. You can also stop by on Friday to get 6 meals for the weekend, or on Thursday to pick up a weekend backpack. The  Holyoke Boys and Girls Club has also started distributing dinner.

Technology Distribution: If you still are in need of a Chromebook and have not received one please reach out to any of us so that we can help you get on the list to pick one up. 


Again let the teachers know if there is anything we can do to better support your family and feel free to reach out to us in whatever way works best for you. Have a great week!
