  • 1 lunch box (if you plan on packing a lunch for your child, also labeled with your child’s first and last name, grade, and room number)


Please bring all supplies on the day of orientation. This will allow us to get the classroom ready for the children before the first day of school so we can start learning and having fun as soon as we come into the room!

Most of the supplies will be communal, which is why they do not need to be labeled. However, please make sure all personal belongings such as lunch boxes and jackets have your child’s full name on them.

Looking forward to a great year!
