BDRs are required for ALL students. Advisory teachers will begin checking them to ensure they are filled out each day. Please encourage your students to purchase their BDR this week before school.



Students are encouraged to have an organizational system that works best for them.

Some examples include:

  • A binder with space for the student agenda (Bailey Daily Runner), some loose leaf paper and tabs for each subject.
  • Pocket folders for each class with one folder dedicated to store homework until it is turned in.
  • An accordion file or folder to organize homework.
