Class School Supply Lists (Please keep checking for updates!)
Junior English Supplies and Books to read (Ms. Wilson and Ms. Payne): Junior English Books Needed
- 1-1 /2 inch flex-hybrid note binder * (The binder becomes the portfolio that is required.)
- Colored markers or pens or pencils
- Access to a printer
Mrs. Salo: HL Biology (Juniors):
- 1-inch three ring binder
- Two packs of 5-tab binder dividers
- Art sketch book (close in size to 8.5" x 11")
- Class notebook - this can be a binder or spiral, but either choice should have pockets and/or dividers (Student preference). Seniors should continue using their notebook from last year so that all of their labs are in one place to help them when they begin work on IA's.
- Juniors will also need a graphing notebook to use as a lab notebook. Composition book style is preferred simply because spiral graphing notebooks do not stack well and get tangled up with each other making it difficult to separate them for grading. The composition style are also much lower cost. The advantage for spiral, though is that they have larger pages and some have pockets which are quite useful for lab handouts. Either choice is fine.
Mr. Mobley's Physics Supply List:
- Scientific calculator (graphing calculator is fine, but not required)
- Metric ruler
- Small loose-leaf binder or a spiral notebook with perforated pages. Pockets and a few dividers are useful but not required, as there are many handouts, or you can hole-punch them. (Any kind of notebook where the student can organize and retain class notes and work that is graded and returned.)
- A small package of graph paper of any type, or a small graph-paper composition book.
- Access to a computer with Zoom, a camera and microphone, and a word processing and spreadsheet program (such as Word & Excel). I believe you can download Word & Excel through the HCPS Microsoft Student Advantage link.
- A smartphone capable of running the Pasco Sparkvue free app would be very useful.
