Supplies 2017-2018

August 2017
Dear Families,
         The following list of items would be most useful for this school year. If possible, please bring these items to “Meet Your Teacher” so that your child does not have to carry them on their first day of school.

For Classroom Community Use:
      1 plastic pencil box (large enough to fit crayons and pencils)
      Crayola Crayons
      Regular or Skinny Washable Markers
      1  box of tissues
      1 pocket folder with any picture/design on the front                  (for your child to use during independent work time)
       1 or 2 extra socks that will not be returned                                         (to be used as whiteboard erasers)
      a 1 ½-inch, 3 ring binder with a clear plastic cover insert
(this will be used for your child’s 1st grade portfolio)

For your child’s personal use, please send in a change of clothes in a plastic bag. Please LABEL your child’s clothing! These will be returned at the end of the school year.

Other helpful items for our classroom include:
       AA batteries (used for flashlights during science and reading time)
      Colorful Pens
      Gallon sized ZipLoc bags
      Skinny Black Whiteboard Markers
      White Envelopes (large or small)

         Thank you for your consideration and support!

Welcome First Graders and Families!

I am really excited for this school year with you! If you are able to, please e-mail me at eyork@sau16.org so that I can update my address book with your information. Feel free to include your name(s) and your child's name, along with something fun you did over the summer. This will help me to create a mailing list, before school officially starts. I look forward to meeting you on Friday (8/25) between 1:00-2:00! -Emily York :)
