The first week of school students should bring a notebook and pen or pencils for taking notes. They will begin to receive syllabi and may want to have a binder or folder in which to organize them. Supplies are course specific and students are informed by their teachers about what they need.
Most courses have an online component of some kind, so a jump drive will be needed to contain their work.
Students are to wear their photo ID at all times around their neck (not in the bookbag or purse or pocket!) It is their ticket into class, they must swipe it to get their books, and may be sent to Retract without it.
White button-down shirt or blouse

Boys-black belt, black socks, white undershirt
Solid Black outerwear or black with Davidson logo

Please make sure your student is dressed properly and observes the dress code.
Attendance is critical. Please make sure your student is here at school on time, every day and stays all day. Please make appointments after school whenever possible. Students have 4-90 minute classes per day, so if they miss one day, they have missed a great deal of instruction.
Access the STI-Home Parent Portal for checking your student’s grades, attendance and discipline frequently. Because of the Block Schedule, the curriculum will move fast and students will need your encouragement to stay on pace. Access codes will be distributed by the School Office.
Progress reports are sent mid-quarter, but you should be able to see your child’s progress through STI-Home. Some teachers give an assignment to bring back the progress report signed for a grade. This is a great way to raise their grade.
Make sure you provide structure and balance for your student. Encourage them to use a student planner (provided at Warrior Camp) and provide a study space conducive to learning.
Remember, it is your responsibility to read the Mobile County Public School Student Handbook and Code of Conduct and to discuss it with your student in order to have a clear understanding of all policies.
