The First day of school, Monday August 22, is fast approaching. Many of our families have been interested in knowing what supplies are helpful for each classroom. The link below is the list of supplies that each teacher suggests. You are not required to make these purchases, as our school district will make sure that each student has the necessary supplies to do their schoolwork. If you are interested in purchasing school supplies as a donation to our school, these items are the most helpful.

Happy Holidays! AAUW’s “Reading Rocks” program brings in tutors every week to work with first graders to improve their literacy skills with one on one assistance.
