School Supplies Needed

The single most important item that students need for success in middle school is an organizing system that works for them.  This could be:
  • 6-7 pocket expanding file folder (we find this works best for most students), OR
  • binder with 6 pocket dividers OR
  • 6 different color pocket folders, one for each subject
 
Please help your students keep their papers in the appropriate sections of their organizer.  We can't tell you enough what a difference this will make for your child.

More valuable tools that students will need for daily success:
  1. 3 separate 70 sheet spiral notebooks - for Social Studies, Math, and Science
