Re: School supply lists

Ticonderoga pencils cost more up front but save money (and strife) in the long run.

Please bring the following supplies to leave at school. Please label * with First and last name.
*Box of crayons (8 only)
* White Elmers glue (medium size)
* 1 glue stick
* 2 chubby pencils
* Scissors ( We recommend Fiskars for children)
* Supply bag or box (about 6 x 9)
* School Bag to carry to school each day - one easily opened and closed by child
- and that will hold shoes & snow pants in winter
Box of Washable Markers
Large bath towel for rest - NO mats 1 box Kleenex
1 or 2 bottle of liquid hand soap
***Optional Items (to be shared by all):
White board Dry Erase black markers
I didn't know anyone used chubby pencils anymore. There's been so many studies showing it's like an adult trying to write with one of those comically large pencils. Every school I know of uses golf pencils.

I'm thinking only 1/3-1/2 of the kids bring in everything on the list. So, it's making up for that.
