    School supplies  


    Please check this list carefully. It might be slightly different than the grade level list. It has been modified to meet our storage needs. . If you have already purchased supplies, it is ok.   Please keep extras at home.  When supplies run low, I will send a note home that your child or the class is looking for additional supplies.  

    Please do NOT send three-ring binders. 


    Thank you in advance for sending in supplies and wish list items.   I know the beginning of the year can be expensive and I greatly appreciate your donations!




    Orca School Supplies


        3 packs of #2 Dixon Ticonderoga Pencils

              (This brand is a bit expensive but does not get eaten by the sharpener as easily.)

               Please do NOT send the coated pencils with all of the cute designs.  As cute as they are, our pencil sharpener will NOT sharpen them. 

       8 glue sticks

       1 regular size pencil box (Please do not send small ones. They do not hold supplies well.)

       2 plastic two pocket folders (NO prongs)

       1 pair of scissors

       1 box of 24 count crayons (These may need to be replaced as the year goes.)

       1 pink eraser or top cap erasers

       1 pack of 4 fat Expo dry erase markers.  Black is preferred. 

       1 old (clean) sock for our white boards (If you have extra missing socks, we could use them.)

       1 box of Kleenex (We may need to ask again during the cold season for extras.)

       1 pack of notebook paper

       1 pair earbud headphones or SMALL headphones (we don’t have a lot of storage space in desks)

  • Welcome to Class Dojo!


    This year we will be using Class Dojo as a behavior incentive in our classroom.  Students earn negative and positive points for classroom behaviors and work habits.  They will set weekly goals and their points will be used as dollars to purchase coupons from our Dojo Store.   I will introduce this program to the children on the first day of school.  You can access this information by using the signup paper I sent home in the back to school packet.

    SeeSaw Digital Journals


    Want to know what your child is up to at school?   We will be using SeeSaw as a digital portfolio to collect and show off our work.  You can download the app and get notifications when your child posts a product.  You can even send them some love during the day to tell them how awesome their work is!  There will be a paper going home with them in the first few days of school once they have added themselves to our class.
