School Supplies Needed

Kangaroo Supplies

Organizing system (most important!)

The single most important item that students need for success in middle school is an organizing system that works for them.

Expanding File: We have found that for most students, binders are not the best organizational systems.  But we have found that expanding files (“accordion files”) are easy to use and smaller to carry! They can be found at most stores with school & office supplies. Look for expanding files with at least 7 sections. FYI: fabric expanding files tend to last longer than the plastic style.
