What do 1st graders need to bring to school daily?
-Chromebook: fully charged and personal earbuds or small headphones

-Lunch and recess snacks (cafeteria lunches available)
-Water bottle
-Wear comfortable clothes and shoes to play outside and go to PE.

School Supplies

All basic supplies will all be provided by the school. Students will be using: pencils, pens, highlighters, dry erase markers, whiteboards, erasers, glue sticks, etc. Bring your own personal earbuds or small headphones if possible. I would prefer the school computers remain in the classroom.

These are the items we use up often.  Donations are always appreciated.

*Baby wipes: unscented for kids hands/tables


*Dry erase/Expo Markers – black

*Gift Cards for other classroom supplies: Target, Costco, Amazon

First Grade Tips

Wear "playground safe" clothes and shoes daily.  Make sure your child can wear shoes they can manage on their own (slip on, velcro, laces). If your child cannot tie their own shoes, please don't send them to school in lace up shoes.  Also, no light-up or wheeled shoes. They need to manage their clothes independently throughout the day.
Clean out their backpacks often. Please keep all toys, stuffed animals, trinkets, jewelry, and special treasures at home.  There is a ball cart available at recess; but if kids want to bring their own soccer, basketball, football, tennis ball, etc. they can.

Cell phone or any techy game watches are not allowed inside the classroom. If parents want a cell phone watch to be in their backpack during the day please let me know.

Weekly envelopes are sent home weekly with school paperwork and some classwork.   Please empty the envelope and send it back the following day.  

     Label everything with first name and last name. (Sally Gomez or Sally G.) The Lost and Found is by the lunch tables if you need to find something you can come in after school.

    Please choose a simple backpack that can hook up and that your child can open/close on their own. No wheeled, suitcase backpacks please. These are difficult in crowded hallways. Practice at home packing and unpacking their backpack with their lunchbox, water bottle, sweatshirt and a folder. Make sure they can open their lunch food containers and wrappers. Practice eating "school lunch" independently at home as much as you can before school starts.
Class DOJO I will get you a class code so you can add this app to your phone.  This will include a class story of pictures I take during the day so you can see what we are working on. It also serves as a messaging system with whole class messages for the teacher to send and 1-1 messaging between teacher-parent. It also shows you your child's behavior points, both positive and negative so you can talk with your child about their day. I love the class DOJO app as a way to show you our learning.
