Looking for a School Supply List?
Since teachers provide syllabi’s with school supply information for their courses, we encourage families to purchase general items (ex: paper, pencils, notebooks) for the first week of school.
Texas Instruments TI-30Xa
Scientific Calculators will be part of the statewide assessments for all 7th and 8th grade math courses. This is an example of the calculator that will be allowed on the FSA test (2019/2020). Other calculators will not be permitted. Cost is about $10. Students are expected to have their own TI-30Xa calculator in class daily.
Landrum has recently begun a pilot program with the Schoology learning management system. Schoology is a secure online program that serves as a central hub for learning. Teachers can create, manage and share information and resources with their students. Students using Schoology can get class assignments, link to readings and guides selected by their teacher, collaborate with classmates, take tests and quizzes, and work on self-paced learning activities. Here at Landrum, all teachers will be posting Daily Board Agendas (DBAs) to ensure all students and parents know what is being taught in the classroom. Parents and students are given login information.
Start Time: 7:30
Wednesday Dismissal: 12:50
Home Access Center (eSchool Plus+) allows parents to view their child’s educational information via a secure, password protected website. Eschool contains vital class information to help students including dates and details of upcoming assignments, projects and test dates. Eschool allows teachers to post files like worksheets, PowerPoints or text files containing important class information. Students will find the information just as important as parents.

Cell phones must be turned off and put away while on campus. Text messages are strictly prohibited. Landrum Middle School will not investigate nor be held responsible for missing or damaged phones. Violation of this policy is considered defiance and could lead to suspension.
