Student Materials: Being prepared for class will help you succeed. Please bring the following materials with you on a daily basis: Pencils & erasers, a composition notebook, a folder set aside to keep handouts or assignments, and your assignment notebook. You will use colored pencils throughout the school year, but simply store them in your locker until needed. A textbook will be available online or from the LMC for home use. You may need to reread material at home after it is covered in class for better understanding.
