       Classwork/Quizzes: 40%

    Required Supplies: Notebook paper, pencils/pens, graph paper, glue stick, sticky tabs, and a notebook (1-2 subjects).


    Class structure: Mondays through Wednesdays will usually be note-taking and supplementary activities. Students will also reinforce that week’s material with Khan Academy on these days. Unit tests will be given on about a monthly basis. Notebooks will also be checked every month to ensure that students are keeping up with the class.


    Communication: Adequate parent/teacher and student/teacher communication is imperative. If ever there is a question or concern, do not hesitate to call or email me. Parent/teacher conferences must be scheduled through the guidance department. The parent portal is the most efficient way to remain aware of how you/your child is doing, as well as what we are covering in class.
