Kindergarten Supply List
Dear Kindergarten Families,
Hello! We are thrilled to be your child’s Kindergarten teachers! Our day will be filled with LOTS of reading (we use a program called EBLI, which is awesome!), hands-on math activities, science exploring and experiments, character building activities, writing and art projects. We love to use music so your child will be singing new songs before you know it!
Most school items will be supplied for your child. Following are a few things he/she will need to bring on the first day and they will be added to the class supply:
- 24 pack Crayola crayons
- 5-10 glue sticks
The following items will be left in the bottom of your child’s cubby so that they are here if needed:
- an extra set of labeled uniform clothing (in case your child has an accident/spill)
- gym shoes for weekly visits to the YMCA (new or used and clean)
- art shirt labeled with student’s name (old t-shirt or button down shirt is fine)
The following are items we use frequently throughout the year and would love donations:
- Clorox/Lysol wipes
- Dry Erase Markers
We will provide a communication folder that will need to be checked each night. Please make sure that your child has a backpack that will fit a folder in it and that it is brought EVERY day. Also, since we do have the uniform policy (solid white shirts with collars and blue pants, shorts, skirts or jumpers) we have lots of identical clothing. PLEASE label your child’s sweaters, coats, lunchboxes and all those other commonly misplaced items.
We understand how exciting and nervous you all may be about your child taking this big step. Please be reassured that we are in this together! While we know this will be difficult, please do your best to leave your child as quickly as possible when they are dropped off on the first day of school. It really does help your child transition better. We promise they are in wonderful, caring hands. We have an open door policy and you are welcome to stop by anytime!
We look forward to meeting you at the open house on Wednesday, August 30th, 3:00-6:00pm. Have a fantastic rest of summer and we will see you Tuesday, September 5th!
Your Kindergarten Teacher
