    ISN: Interactive Student Notebooks

    Each student will be expected to maintain an interactive student notebook, one for Social Studies and one for Language Arts and keep them. They need to bring both of them to class everyday. These notebooks will be used in class every day. Students can take their ISN, Interactive Student Notebooks,  home to study for their tests, but they will need to be returned the next school day as we use them in class everyday. The students will also have a spiral notebook for their writing log responses. 

    I look forward to a great school year.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 832-736-6400 or email at ellisc@pearlandisd.org

    Conference time is 10:15 to 10:45. 

    Please check your students grades on Skyward.
