I hope you all are enjoying your summer, can you believe we’ll be in school together in 2 weeks?! 🙂 I am so excited to see 23 smiling faces walk through the door on August 24. Letters will be arriving in your mailboxes in the next few days. They have important information about first grade and our classroom. I can’t wait to work with you and help your child grow this year.

Below are a few things you need to know for the first day:


I will be providing some supplies to students to share, but students may want their own supplies. Here are a few things that you may want to consider. Throughout the year your child will need:

  • A pencil box
  • #2 Pencils & Erasers
  • Scissors (optional)
  • 1-2 24 pack of Crayons (Walmart has them on sale for $0.50!)
  • Colored Pencils (optional)
  • Glue Sticks (3 pack)
  • Dry Erase Markers
  • A Sock for Erasing


We always appreciate classroom donations of supplies to help us create, learn, and have fun in first grade! If you would like to donate any of the following items, it would be greatly appreciated. 🙂

  • 24 packs of Crayons for shared bins
  • highlighters
  • tissues
  • hand sanitizer
  • Elmers Glue Sticks
  • clothespins
  • ziploc baggies (any size)
