Dear Students and Parents,

We know that many families enjoy shopping as they look forward to a new school year and teachers often receive questions regarding recommended school supplies. Due to space limitations and to help you avoid making unnecessary purchases, we have compiled a list of important items for fifth graders to use in school throughout the year. Please read carefully, as there are deletions, additions, and exceptions for certain teachers.

  • 2 Dozen #2 Pencils
  • 1 Glue Stick
  • 1 Pack of 12 Thin Markers
  • 1 Pack of 12 Colored Pencils
  • 2 Highlighters
  • 2 Dry Erase Markers
  • 1 Clean Old Sock (for dry erase boards)
  • 1 Zippered Pencil Pouch-Please no pencil boxes
  • 3 - 1 Subject Spiral Bound Notebooks

*Other helpful items we can use in our classrooms: Tissues, pump hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, band aids, and cough drops.

The fifth grade teachers will be working in teams of 2 next year with one teacher responsible for teaching ELA and one teacher responsible for teaching Math, Science/Social Studies. Please find your child’s homeroom teacher below for additional supplies needed for their team.
