Fifth Grade Supplies for the 2015-2016 School Year
Dear Incoming 5th Grade Students and Families,
We are very excited about the opportunity of teaching your child and working with you this coming year. The upcoming school year will be an exciting and challenging one. In an effort to help be prepared for the upcoming year, here is an attached list of supplies that are necessary for our classroom community.


All items should be brought on the first day of school. Items with three asterisks * next to them mean that you should leave one at home and bring one to school.
Further, all quantities are listed in parenthesis after the description of the item. Please do not label any items as we will be doing so in class.

Please remember to check in with your child on a regular basis throughout the school year to see if any of his/her supplies need to be replenished.
