Student Supplies


Below is a list of suggested supplies for Room 51.  The more organized and prepared students are, the more time we will have in class to concentrate on learning the curriculum for the grade level and exploring individual potential. 

Please do not purchase unnecessary items as student desks' spaces are limited. Please also do not purchase supplies that may be distracting to others and/or to your student (battery operated pencil sharpeners, light-up pens, and other toy-like objects).  Any distracting items will be confiscated and returned at the end of the year.  Thank you!
I will provide students with some initial supplies. 
Please try to have supplies by Monday, August 23, 2021.   Thank you!
 *Some items may need to be replenished by the parent/guardian throughout the year.
