School Supplies and Wish List

  • Our supply budget is tiny, so parents and teachers work together to make up the difference the best we can. I try to keep my list as short and simple as possible, and will always make sure every student has what they need.  I will never scold or announce students who are missing any of these items, so please don't worry if you're not able to get everything.  

    If you'd like to go "above and beyond" and send in extras of the necessary supplies, or an item or two from the Wish List, it will definitely be used and appreciated!  

    Supplies Needed:

    • a backpack (normal-sized and with no wheels...otherwise it won't fit in your cubby!)
    • a sock or eraser for the white board I'll give you
    • 2 Expo dry erase markers for writing on your white board (the "fat" ones work best; preferably black)
    • pencils (as many as you can bring--we keep a shared pencil can and we go through them VERY quickly!)
    • two 24-count boxes of Crayola crayons
    • 2 or more black Sharpies (standard "fine point" type)
    • as many Elmer's glue sticks you can bring (8 is great!)
    • 1 package of white copy paper
    • 1 box of Kleenex (or more!)
    • 1 normal-sized plastic pencil box
    • 1 pad of Post-Its (size 3x3 or size 1" by 1", or both)
    • 1 spiral notebook (single subject), any color
    • a 2-pocket folder for Work in Progress (any design or color you like)

    Wish List

    Here are some items we can always use!

    • Children's books for our classroom library
    • white or colored copy paper
