Daily Supplies

Students should have the following supplies with them in class on a DAILY basis:
1. Silent reading book (SSR)

They will also need a composition book or spiral notebook. Art boxes with glue, scissors, and colored pencils are recommended several times throughout the year.
Students may retake two tests or quizzes during any grading period. The student needs to fill out a retake form, complete it, attach the original test, and turn it in to me. A different test covering the same content will then be given to the student. The better grade will be the one put into the gradebook.
