Supplies (those specific to Mathematics are marked with *)

A great ASK Attitude for SUCCESS

*A 1-inch binder OR a Pocket Folder WITH 3-hole prongs  (specifically for Math rather than for multiple classes)

*1 five-subject spiral-bound notebook with a minimum of 150 pages of paper (just for Math)

*A basic operation calculator (does NOT need to be trigonometry or graphing and should not cost more than $10 at full price)

*1 graph paper notebook for geometry activities throughout the year

*1 package 3x5 cards (plain or lined)

1 package of 2x2 or 3x3 post-its OR mini-tabs


The following will be used in all of your classes and personal organization including Math: 

AGENDA or homework planner

1 yellow highlighter, 1 blue highlighter, 1 pink highlighter (layering colors will give us 6 colors)

1 package of theme/loose leaf paper.

1 or 2 blue or black pens

1 red pen for correcting your work at least 2 pencils (and a personal sharpener if needed)

1 package of colored pencils (8 to 12 colors is sufficient for math.  It is perfectly fine to use the same set as you will use in other courses.)

A standard ruler (if it has holes, it can easily be stored in the 1 inch binder)

1 Flash drive of at least 8GB ( good for all classes so you don’t need to get an additional flash drive next year)

White-out tape


Glue stick

Backpack and supply pouch/pencil box

Lock for your locker


WATER bottle (no other beverages allowed inside learning spaces by scholars)




Each class project manager will provide additional materials needed based on the subject. 


Fundamental Connections specific request of ALL scholars (campus wide)

1-2 reams of copy paper

1 container of bleach wipes

1 bottle of hand sanitizer

1- 2 boxes Kleenex

Package of Dry-Erase markers  (NOT SHARPIES)


Note:  during the year, as projects are determined based on scholars’ research and interest, there will be additional items required.  I will give you as much prep-time as possible for those items.
