Important information
Dear parents:
It is important for your child to be prepared everyday with the needed materials to perform well in my class.  Should your child forget or lose any of the materials, he or she will be provided with the necessary materials to complete that day's duties.  However, should this become a recurrent issue, I will contact you to devise a solution to the matter.  Materials and supplies must be brought to class everyday.
These are the materials I require for my class:
  • a composition notebook for taking daily notes.  Spiral notebooks are highly discouraged and will not help your child become successful.  Please, make sure they have a composition notebook.
  • several pens or pencils and the accessories that those entail: liquid paper, eraser, sharpener, pencil bag, etc.
  • a pack of loose leafs (also called filler paper, can be wide or college ruled) for turning in assignments, bellringers, exit tickets, etc.  Spiral paper will not be accepted neither torn composition notebook paper.
  • I will do my best to provide for your child's needs but keep in mind that I will not always have hand sanitizer or tissue to provide students.  Please, make sure you child is prepared to address these needs.
A tardy system has been implemented in the school this year.  Please, remind your child that, should he/she be tardy, they must obtain a tardy pass from the office before they can enter my classroom.  There will be no exceptions to this rule as it is highly enforced by administration.

Looking forward to a productive year and to help your child become a successful member of our society in the future.

Best regards,

Raul Martinez, BSSE, JD
