  • Supplies:

    Suggested a 3 ring binder for notes and handouts. However, you may also choose a composition/spiral notebook for note-keeping. You should go with whatever you are most comfortable and successful with; pens/pencil; paper. Occasionally we will use colored pencils, but I keep a class set in my room.


    Each week, I will update this page, but only add homework assignments AFTER they have been assigned. Please check this site daily for its best benefit. If you are absent, please check this page as well.
