• What supplies do I need for this class?

     This 2020-2021 school year, GFMS will be implementing a new Language Arts curriculum called Wit and Wisdom. There will be some changes from what you and your student(s) are accustomed to, but we will be doing all we can to make the transition as positive and pleasant as possible. 

     For my classes, students will need loose leaf paper, pencils, red pens, a 2-2.5 inch binder, and a set of five dividers to go in that binder. Wit and Wisdom has a work structure consisting of the following sections:

    Knowledge

    Vocabulary

    Response

    Writing

    Reference

      Having just one binder for class should be easier for students to keep track of, and having it divided into those five sections will make it easier for students to keep their class information organized.

     

     *Students will also need to bring a book from home to read in the morning this week. Library book check-outs are currently scheduled to begin next week, but until then, students need to bring their own. Information about A.R. will be shared next week as well.

     

     If you find yourself in a position where you are unable to purchase school supplies for your student, please contact Mr. Ackerman or Ms. Hollar as soon as possible and let them know.*
