    So, what is a F.R.O.G. Binder?
    F.R.O.G. = Fully Responsible Organized & Growing
    The F.R.O.G. Binder is a 3 ring notebook that students use everyday to develop organizational skills and develop responsibility.
    This 3-ring notebook houses EVERYTHING students and parents need to keep up-to-date with what is going on at school.

    Gone are the days of wrinkled papers and lost notes, and homework.


    Here is how it is organized:

    Inside Front Cover Notes and work from school. This is the side we refer to as “The Purple Side.” The purple side of the binder houses sheets that require your attention and a return to school.
    Money & Important Notes Pouch This pocket is to be used to send notes to the teacher that need immediate attention, such as transportation changes, doctor's appointments, urgent concerns, etc. I will also use this pocket to send you notes that require immediate attention.
    You may need to send money to school for lunch, book club orders, Market Day orders, etc. Please use this pocket to send money to school. Remember to send money to school in a LABELED and SEALED envelope.
