Recipe For A Successful Year!

Today we had a wonderful day. We had so many things to organize and set up. 
We learned that we are a team and we all have qualities in common, as well as characteristics that make us unique!
We discussed what it takes to have a successful year and are brainstorming ideas tonight, as we fuel our brains with a little "food for thought!"

Text Message Reminders

This year I'm using Remind to send updates about important class information. 
We will also have a class Twitter account, which I will share information about at Back to School Night on August 26, 2014

To sign up for Room 20 REMIND notifications, please follow the instructions below

2014 2015 Supply List

In 4th grade we stress preparation and organization. In order to start the school year off right, we are asking you to donate the following supplemental items for your child. Please provide quality items as they need to last all year. Label your child’s name on his/her items and bring them to school during the first week! Thank you!

For the Student:
Pencil Pouch with a zipper (no pencil boxes)
Colored Pencils (Crayola© is a great choice - at least 24 count)
Colored Thin markers (at least a 10 count)
White eraser (Staedtler© is the best!)
White board markers and an eraser (an old sock will do)
2 Single Subject Spiral Notebooks (wide ruled - at least 100 pages each)
3 Composition Notebooks
Kid-friendly Scissors
Pencil sharpener (one that holds its shavings)
1 pack of pencils (please NO mechanical pencils)
2 ultra thin fine BLACK Sharpies
2 fine BLACK Sharpies
Glue sticks (at least 6)
Flash Drive
1 Pocket Folder for Homework (The design and color can be your choice,
but make it extra sturdy and please NO Binders!)
Backpack (Please do not bring rolling backpacks as we have very limited
closet space to accommodate them.)
5 plastic or heavy duty (not paper) pocket folders (no prongs) in the
following colors: yellow, purple, red, blue, and green
Optional: 4 large book covers - students will be asked to cover their
textbooks during the first weeks of school

For the Class:
1 box of tissues
1 container or package of baby wipes
1 packet or ream of white printer/copy paper
Although the school district will provide us with some basic supplies, it is simply not enough to get through the year. These items are for the classroom and will be shared by all students. DO NOT label your child’s name on these items. Thank you so much!
