COVID-19 announcement.  We will begin the academic year in REMOTE learning from August 3 until at least September 7. When it is safe, we will begin HYBRID learning. I know this isn't how you hoped to begin your middle school journey, but we will make the best of the situation and still excel in life and learning. 

 

*When we return to the building, FACE MASKS that cover both nose and mouth are absolutely required in my learning space at all times to ensure the safety of others whose ADA and IDEA rights require them to have a learning environment free from direct threat of disease that might complicate their FERPA-protected health status.

Supplies (those specific to Mathematics are marked with *)

*FACE MASKS that cover both nose and mouth are absolutely required in my learning space at all times to ensure the safety of others in the class whose ADA and IDEA rights require them to have a learning environment free from direct threat of disease that might complicate their FERPA protected health status. 

*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.   (for when we return to the school building in at least hybrid)

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

* at least 6 pencils (and a personal sharpener if needed) 

 

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

Face Mask (and a spare)

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 or purple pen for correcting your work

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

Scissors

Glue stick

Backpack and supply pouch/pencil box

Lunchbox

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

 

TEACHER WISH LIST: 

 

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

 

Fundamental Connections specific request of ALL scholars (campus wide)

*FACE MASKS that cover both nose and mouth are absolutely required in my learning space at all times to ensure the safety of others in the class whose ADA and IDEA rights require them to have a learning environment free from direct threat of disease that might complicate their FERPA protected health status. 

1-2 reams of copy paper

2-3 container of bleach wipes

1 VERY LARGE bottle of hand sanitizer

1- 2 boxes Kleenex

Package of Dry-Erase markers  (NOT SHARPIES) for use on white boards (I go through them very fast since I write lots of example problems on the boards)

 

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 (usually at least 5 days) to obtain those items that are usually readily available at a dollar store or 'big box' location.
