Some important information you should know:


  • All parents should ensure that they have access to the CPS Parent Portal. Grades should be checked weekly to verify that students are on the right track. If a student is struggling with a particular concept, please contact me immediately.

  • Students will have math homework on a regular basis. Homework is an essential part of learning and it is very important that your child completes their homework. I post the homework daily on the school’s website : www.Kiplingtigers.org

  • All students should come to class prepared and ready to work with the following supplies everyday:

    • TI-30 Texas Instrument Scientific Calculator

    • Erasers

    • Ruler

    • Binder or folder for math only

    • Earbuds

- Students in my homeroom also require: 1 large hand sanitizer, 2 reams of white copy paper, 2 boxes of tissue, 2 rolls of paper towels and one container of clorox cleanup or similar.
