Supply List

The only thing required for my class is a spot/place in a 3 ring binder (can be any subject - History may be best) that students can place handouts and record notes as needed for Science.

Optional needs are: facial tissues (always needed), wet wipes (for cleaning up tables), paper towels (cleaning up our messes), and other things we will need will be posted closer to time but please collect and save all shoeboxes - send them in as you have them. Each student will need one for an upcoming project later in the year.
