Grades 2 - 8:
All students in grades 2-8 will be issued a standard student planner for assignments. Parents who wish to help defray this cost to the school should send $5.00 for each planner to the office at the start of school.
Some general suggestions from the teachers include:
Pencils should be #2 with erasers; mechanical pencils are not recommended.
Rulers should include both standard and metric measurements.
Folders should be different colors to help with organization.
Supplies should be labeled with student's name. It's also helpful to write younger children's names on labels of clothing-especially on gym day when all the uniforms in the locker room look the same! A bag for gym clothes.
Students will need to cover all hard backed textbooks. Brown bags work fine.
Teachers prefer the soft plastic pencil cases with zippers. The hard plastic boxes don't hold up when dropped and student supplies break and scatter.
