Dear Parents of First Graders,
I would like to welcome you and your child to our first grade family. I look forward to a very productive year where we will grow spiritually, academically, and socially.
Although we provide many materials, you will need to supply the following for your child:
1 composition notebook (7.5 x 9.75 inches)2 clear large zippered pencil cases
24 #2 Ticonderoga (no Staples brand as they break easily) pencils with erasers (pencils should be sharpened)
2 RED pencils with erasers
(NO DECORATIVE OR TOY-LIKE PENS, PENCILS, OR ERASERS WILL BE ALLOWED.)
2 soft pink erasers
2 LARGE boxes of Kleenex (no pocket size, please)
1 box of broad tip twistable crayons (24 count encased in plastic, please)
1 box of Crayola WASHABLE Markers (8 count, broad tip) Please make sure a brown and black marker are included in set.
2 LARGE glue sticks (no individual names needed on these)
3 boxes of handi-wipes (for hand use-- baby wipes are okay) Unscented
1 twelve-inch ruler (with inches and metric measure - wood) Please try to buy rulers where numbers are written
horizontally across ruler.
3 folders (two pockets only) 2 different solid colored folders and 1 fun colored folder
It is very important that the following supplies and uniform items be marked in permanent marker with your child’s first and last name:
sweatshirt and lunch box
backpack and erasers
ruler and folders
notebook and zipper pouches
Each individual twistable crayon
Each individual marker
Each individual pencil
Please label the last three items INDVIDUALLY. Please use a permanent marker to write name. Do not use name stickers because they fall off too easily.
This tedious task eliminates tears when twistables, pencils, or markers fall on the floor. Thank you so much!
Please note that the following are NOT allowed:
Short jumpers or skorts
Rolling of skorts or P.E. shorts
Oversized shirts and pants
Socks below the ankle and/or sport socks
Backpacks on wheels due to space and safety regulations.
Writing on backpacks is not allowed. White out is also not allowed.
I look forward to a successful year and to meeting you at Back to School Night in September.
Mrs. Melinda Hage
First Grade Teacher
