Lester Middle School uses the strategies, for every student, of a One-Binder System and writing in an agenda, every period. This is research driven to help with organization. On the 3rd day (2nd B-day) your student will be requested by Mrs. Buckner for seminar. She will have an AVID student help set up their binder and agenda. This will help start them off on an organized path. Please have your student bring the following supplies to school on their 2nd B-Day.

• 2-inch binder (not a trapper keeper type) 3 inch would also work
• Pencil pouch that goes into the binder
• Tabbed dividers (8 sections)
• Paper or Plastic folder with holes (go to into binder)
