  • At least 2 highlighters
  • Backpack or book bag
  • A supply of index cards at home
  • Inexpensive ear buds

Spanish: No specific supplies necessary 

Optional but useful:  

  • Glue stick
  • White out
  • Post it notes
  • Reinforcement labels for binder paper
  • Calculator (an inexpensive one to keep in your binder)

Organizational hints:

  1. Organize your binder weekly. Punch holes in your papers and try to find a place for every sheet in your binder.
  2. Set up an “overflow system” for home. At the end of a unit test or a quarter, ask the teacher if you can transfer notes from the last unit to the overflow system. Old binders or file folders work well for this.
  3. Clean your locker out regularly.

Note: The lockers for Middle School are plastic and large enough to fit a regular backpack. Most of the fancy magnetized decorations and organizers sold for lockers will not work in these lockers. No combination lock is needed.

Remember to put your name in/on all belongings. Let’s reduce items in the Lost & Found by labeling your lunch box, jackets, sweatshirts, backpack, etc.
