Excellence for Every Child
2019-2020 School Supply Lists:
Please keep in mind that these lists are General Supply Lists. Additional or more specific supply requests may be made by specific teachers at the beginning of the school year.
A Message for our 6th Grade Families:
The first reminder is that 6th Grade Orientation will be THURSDAY, August 1st from 8:30 AM -12:00 PM. School doors will open at 8:00 AM for this event only. Please note that this is different than in past years, and it is a THURSDAY now instead of Friday. There were some flyers that were mistakenly sent out in student folders with the incorrect dates. During this orientation, students will get a chance to meet their teachers, walk through their schedules, learn about lockers and agendas, etc. A snack will be provided for students, but lunch will not. Students do NOT need to bring backpacks, locks, or any other supplies on this day! Additionally, our amazing PTSA will have a parent room set up in the library with coffee and light refreshments for those who would like to visit for a while. Some of them will offer advice and suggestions, as well as reassurance about the transition to middle school.
Here are a couple of other notes just for 6th-grade parents:
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing your students here very soon!
