    Thank you and I'm looking forward to a great 2020-21 school year. As you purchase back to school supplies, please note that you need no special materials for science class. General school supplies are fine. I typically pass out a paper copy of our textbook notes, so be prepared to have a folder or three ring binder to organize these in. 
    With the Covid-19 safety precautions, we are discouraged from sharing art supplies in the classroom. It would be helpful, but not required, for each student to have their own art supplies (colored pencils, glue sticks, scissors, etc.). For most of my projects, I give students the option of creating a digital project as well. Headphones / ear buds are a big help as I do provide students with videos to watch in Google Classroom and sharing headphones will not be something we can do this year. 
    A luxury item would be a USB wireless mouse. They can be purchased for as little as $10. We use our Chromebooks a lot in science class. I've noticed that students often find it difficult to operate the track pad on the Chromebooks. Consider this a personal choice as some students may not like having another item to keep track of.
