General Supply Lists for Incoming K-2 Students

 
Dear Students and Families,
 
In an effort to make your school supply shopping easier, each grade level team created a list of supplies that you will need.  We have chosen these items carefully and feel that they enhance our instructional program.  Toward the end of summer, you will receive information regarding additional items specific to your classroom.
