• Each student is required to have an Interactive Student Notebook (ISN).  ISN's should remain in the classroom unless students are preparing for an upcoming test or completing homework.  It is the students' responsibility to remember to bring their ISN back to school once removing it from the classroom.

    Students should use the following guidelines to set up their ISN's.  Students can check this website or the teacher ISN in class to keep track of what should be entered into them, and where it should be entered. IAN's will be graded and scored as a TEST grade once per marking period, so students should keep them up-to-date at all times.

    See sample pages below for additional assistance with setting up your ISN.
