You Made It! Welcome to Fifth Grade!
I know that school is still in the future, but I'm anticipating some of you might stumble upon our website during the next few weeks. I thought I would throw in a few items that might be helpful to you and your parents.
First off - supplies.
The school lists are out there, but my classroom list is a little different. Don't panic! It's different because there are mostly things we don't need.
3 spiral notebooks
2 packages of loose leaf paper
1 pink eraser
1 pocket folder (not 2)
mechanical pencils and lead (get extra during the sales in the summer)
8 black dry erase markers (the kiddos use them on their white boards daily)
1 package wide markers
1 package colored pencils (not 2)
4 glue sticks
1 bottle of school glue
1" three-ring binder
1 package of tab dividers
1 sock or rag for erasing white boards
Your child will not need red correcting pens, a ruler, a pencil box, crayons, or watercolors.
THERE'S ONE ADDITION -A GOOD paperback dictionary (Merriam-Webster is great)
This is something that your child will be using frequently, and something they can use in the future.
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT IS ON AUGUST 23rd from 6-7 (I think ... you never can tell when the powers that be will change things) This gives you a chance to drop off supplies, get your child moved in to their desk, and pick up some information packets from ME! I'm making some changes this year, so we will go over those items as well.
The first day of school is on August 24th. We'll be following the early-release schedule, so the students will go home at 1:50 p.m.
