Expectations & Obligations
I am committed to providing a rich learning environment for your student.
I expect your student to attend class regularly, participate in lab activities and class, actively listen, complete all assignments on time, and request assistance when necessary.

Your student should be able to explain one thing they learned in class for 3-5 minutes every day. That is a good indication that they have participated and learned the material.
You are one of the most important components of your student's academic journey and success
2 notebooks for just Science
Pen, Pencil, eraser, and loose-leaf paper for binder
Small pack of note cards/index cards
