While some students are excited by the prospect of going to Middle School, I am aware some are feeling apprehensive. To be as prepared as possible for the new schedule I am asking you to help organize your child’s binder with him/her. Organizational skills will be key to a successful year.
Please help set up your child’s binder as follows:
1) Label subject dividers in the following order: Math, L.A. (Language Arts), Science, LIT. (Literature), Social Studies, Religion.
2) Place each subject divider with 10 sheets of lined paper into the binder. In addition, place 10 sheets of graph paper in the Math and Science sections.
3) In the pencil pouch place 3 blue/black pens, 1 red pen, 3 pencils, 1 permanent marker, a highlighter, a dry erase marker, 1 glue stick and 1 eraser. (replace as needed)
Your child will have a personal area (cubbie in desk) to store belongings but please keep the following in his/her study area at home until needed:
Extra subject dividers
Extra writing utensils
Extra lined and graph paper
