Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had an amazing summer!

I am looking forward to getting to know many of you over the course of the school year.

This week students will be reviewing the class syllabus and getting to know how the class is set up.

Students began reviewing their syllabus today, and will continue to review it tomorrow. They will be asked to bring their syllabus home to get signed by a parent/guardian. These are due next Friday (9-6-2019).

Students need to have their required supplies for class next Thursday (9-5-2019). They need to have a notebook (preferably composition) a binder/folder, and a pen or pencil. If students would like to have their own art supplies they can get those as well.
