EIGHTH GRADE

Prepared students will need pencil and paper on a daily basis. Now is a great time to stock up on supplies for the remainder of the year as they are inexpensive. The FRYSC
also has these available as well.  Each student has been loaned a literature book for the school year and we will also learn from a classroom set of grammar books. We also have a consumable workbook for each student. One is provided free of charge.
