  • Each student should have their own Texas Instruments TI-30XS Multiview calculator.
  • These two items are NOT provided in the pre-ordered boxed school supplies - you may need to order online.
  • General information about preparing your school supplies

Notices for Parents:

Students NEED to have their basic 0-20 addition & subtraction facts and 0-12 multiplication and division facts WELL memorized. Please practice by using XtraMath.com daily at home until mastered. This only takes 7-10 minutes each day.

Please accept invitations to your child's Google Classes and help them check their assignments (posted Monday mornings). This is the best way for us to communicate what your child needs to be completing for class. Your child will need some help planning how to manage time to complete their work.

Please be sure that your child is wearing the appropriate school shirt (uniform, Be the Light, or House shirt) when participating in Zoom Study Hall.

If your child is ill and cannot do their schoolwork, please email his or her teachers so that we are aware of the reason your child is not participating fully in distance learning.
