What Do I Need For 2nd Grade??

This year we will need two sets of supplies. Setting up a work area at home will be important as students will work both at home and school this year. It is best for your child to have a desk or specific work area for school work, This will keep them stay organized and focused.  The PTA is providing one box of supplies, but families will be responsible for the other box. As always if you need help, please let me know.  The list below is what is needed for a typical year:

 

3 masks for each day and a very portable snack to eat on the playground

1 plastic pencil box

1 box of crayons(24)

1 box colored pencils

1 box of pencils

1 pair of scissors

2 glue sticks

2 pencil erasers

water bottle

Lunch box

Backpack

(And supplies to work at home while we are remote)
