  • 1 bottle of glue
  • set of white board markers
  • crayons
  • colored pencils
  • markers
  • scissors, Fiskars are the best
  • several highlighters (any color is ok)
  • plenty of sharpened pencils
  • 2 clean socks (to be used as white board erasers)
  • 1 covered, inexpensive, hand held, plastic pencil sharpener (or two); they work great!
  • 2 rolls of scotch tape
  • zippered pencil bag(s) (to keep you organized)
  • a few pads of sticky notes (any shape, size, color is fine)

PLEASE label all folders and notebooks with name and subject. Please have supplies INSIDE the pencil box when sent to school. 

We realize this is a lot to carry on the first day of school.  If you feel like it would be easier, you may drop off supplies on Tuesday, September 5th to the classroom.  We will be in and out of the classroom due to meetings.  If we are not there, please leave supplies on your desk. Please keep in mind the school will be closing at 2:45 pm.

Third grade is a wonderful year filled with new experiences and tons of educational fun!!

Enjoy the summer!! We’ll see you Wednesday, September 6th, 2017.

P.S. The summer time is the best time to get these supplies inexpensively. Keep your eye out for sales at Target, Walmart, Staples, …as we realize this can add up quickly. Generally you can get notebooks and folders for 10-25 cents in the summer. That’s a good deal. Throughout the school year you’ll notice it’s more expensive.


  • Paper towels
  • Cleaning wipes
  • Glue sticks
  • Ziplock bags –all sizes
  • Colored copy paper
  • Cardstock (colored and white)

Thank you so very much.
