School Supplies for the 2021-22 School Year
This year students will share a binder for their Social Studies and Science Class. Mrs. Becker and I are asking for the following items for both in class and online learning.
Guidelines for Learning:
- Social Studies/Science Binder (1 or 1 1/2 inch recommended)
- Dividers (2)
Social Studies Resources:In 7th and 8th grade we will also use Canvas for assignments, blogs, etc.Please check the calendar on the left for homework assignments as well as Canvas.Relevant Sites for Social Studies:
- In class, students will be expected to come prepared every day with an iPad, binder, pen or pencil, and any homework due.
- Class participation is an absolute necessity as you will be working cooperatively in activities with others and engaging in discussions/debates.
- My expectations are that you bring an enthusiastic attitude to class, treat each other and me respectfully, and demonstrate common courtesy.
