Please note that for ELA, scholars will need 1 HEAVY DUTY, PLASTIC-COVERED 5 subject spiral notebook with pockets. We find that 5-Star brand is the most durable. Those who purchased other brands needed to purchase multiple notebooks because the original ones did not hold up.
Students will also need a constant supply of pens/pencils and post-it notes. There are often sales in the summer on these items, so please a an eye out for the best deals around. An official supply list will be distributed when school begins.
