Students at Arbutus Global Middle School have each been given an agenda book and have the use of a lock while they are at school. We respectfully request that students use only agenda books and locks that have been provided by the school. Please refer to to the information package that went home with students during our first week for information on how parents may contribute to the cost of these items.
Grade 6 and 7 students are asked to consider the optional purchase of an Arbutus designed planner. Staff developed this planner and Grade 6 and 7 teachers will be teaching directly to this tool throughout the year.
For many students, locks may be difficult to manage and not all locks are created equal! In order to ensure that teaching and office staff can assist students should they forget their combination and be certain of lock quality, AGMS has purchased a lock for every student.
Attached are the suggested school supplies for students in grades six, seven and eight for the 2011-2012 school year.
