This year I will be trying to communicate more frequently with families using Google Classroom.  This is an initiative supported by the district.  Parents will be receiving an email asking them to join each of their student's classroom teachers Google Classroom platform. Please follow the directions to join.  This will be a great tool for parents to use to stay informed about events, projects, tests, etc....  I look forward to working with students and parents towards student success this school year.

A Note About Supplies:

 Students must have their supplies with them for all core classes every day.

Please ensure that students have their needed supplies daily.  It is so important, especially for science class, as we will be using supplies almost daily. 

Students that do not have their needed supplies tend to fall behind in class because they typically ask to borrow from a neighbor.  If that neighbor is kind enough to lend out their supplies (and they have every right to make their own choice) that neighbor has to complete their task first.  Students will also not be allowed to go to their locker for supplies after the first week of school. 

We are working together to build responsibility within students.  

 

Specific to Mrs. Avila's Earth and Space Science Class, students will need:

 Four (4) - 1 Subject Spiral Notebooks (one for each grading quarter). 

One 1” Binder with pockets
