  5. Supplies The tissues and disinfecting wipes we will keep in the classroom. You will need to set up your notebook with tabs (I will let you know what to label), lined paper and graph paper. Keep extra paper at home so you can replenish your notebook. All of your pencils, pens, scissors, erasers, colored pencils etc. will need to be in a pencil pouch in either your notebook or backpack. REMEMBER… you may keep your things in the desk while you are in each class. At the end of each class, all items must be taken with you to the next class.

  18. Your School Planner • Your responsibility is to use the school planner or another type of planner to keep track of your homework, tests, other assignments and important dates. • It is not enough to just write a page number. You must include dates due (especially for long-term projects). • Have your planner everyday! • Take the time to write in it for all classes. Use the webpage as a back-up plan. • Do not draw or scribble all over your planner. That takes away from the importance of the planner.
