• Here is a list of supplies that can be brought to school for first grade:
    *1 clear plastic "Sterilite" 6 Qt./5.7 L  shoe box with removable lid (found at WalMart, K-Mart or Target), labeled on the end with your child's name and 1A.  The containers that have the purple handles do not fit in the desks.  Please don't buy those. 
    *2  1-inch three ring binders with an inside pocket in the front and the back.  Please get the heavy duty clear view front and back kind and you can have your child decorate a piece of paper and slip it into the front of only one of the binders.  Please print their name on the spine in permanent marker on each binder.
    *1 or 2 glue sticks per quarter (the others should be stored at home for future use if you bought a multiple pack)
    *1 pair of child size Fiskar scissors, labeled with your child's name or 1A
    *1 box of crayons (the school will provide the standard 8 pack, no more than 24 to a pack!)
    *1 soap dish with an attached lid or a plastic crayon box (crayons will go in this-if the crayons don't all fit then they have too many crayons)
    *1 box of 8 washable markers
    *No. 2 pencils (no more than 3 pencils please)  **No handheld pencil sharpeners are needed.  Please don't send one to school.**
    *2 large boxes of tissues (for our classroom & special area) 
    *1 roll of white tear-away paper towels
    *1 gently used sock 
    *1 black dry erase marker per quarter-thick or thin (put the marker into the sock)
    *1 highlighter per quarter-any color 
    *headphones (earbuds seem to slip out of their ears frequently)
    *Clorox Wipes and Hand Sanitizers are also welcome*
    **Since I'm new to this room the chairs don't have tennis balls on them.  If you have any extra/old tennis balls that you don't want back, I'll gladly take them to put on the bottom of your child's chair.  This is not a necessary purchase.  Please don't go out and buy new tennis ballls.  Thanks!**
    Please make sure each item is clearly marked with either your child's name or initials and 1A.  The clear plastic shoe box and the 1 inch binders are the most important items on the list.  This is the "drawer" where they will keep all of their supplies.  This fits next to their books and will help keep their desk neat.  Since they will have the drawer, they will not need a pencil box, case, or pouch of any kind.  Please don't send one to school with your child. 
    For the first day of school, you may pack the drawer with some of their supplies including the lid.  They'll take the lid off at their desk and I'll keep the lid until the last day of school to tote their supplies home. Please make sure their name is on the box and the lid.  Not all of these items need to be brought to school all at once.  You may also bring them with you to curriculum night.  To make their load lighter on the first day please send in only the drawer with lid, a few supplies, and a binder.  The second binder and the rest of the supplies may be sent in the remaining days of the week and the following week.
    I can't wait to meet all of my new first graders!
