Classes start Tuesday, August 14. It will be a regular school day, beginning at 7:50 and ending at 2:55. Wednesdays will be late start days (classes start at 8:10 because teachers have meetings and professional development).
Many times students and parents experience a bit of anxiety transitioning to the junior high from the middle school. Students will have 7 different teachers, change classes, and have an increased amount of responsibility. Please be assured that a little nervousness is completely normal, and that our staff is experienced, kind, and caring, and we will do our best to assist students to be comfortable and to experience success from the first day of school.
Supplies: Mountain Home School District does furnish supplies for its students, but I have found that some students like to purchase their own things to suit their personal tastes. The first day of school, all that will be needed is paper and a pen or pencil. The supplies we will use in my class throughout the year include: * a 3 ring binder (an AVID binder - used for all classes) * notebook dividers * a pencil pouch * several pencils (it's a good idea to keep extras on the top shelf of your locker in a pencil box) * erasers * colored pens for grading (most teachers use red) * loose leaf paper * a composition notebook (this will stay in the classroom and be used for notes, assignments, etc.) * 2 or 3 colors of highlighters
