Welcome to middle school! One of the biggest indicators for success in 5th grade is being organized. This year it will be especially important that you have all of your materials with you when you come to school and that they are organized and easy to transport when you are working at home. Therefore, you will need the following items, and they will need to come to school with you EVERY day you are at school. 

For Organization 

  • Backpack
  • TWO paper folders for English/Social Studies, to organize loose papers and homework.
  • A 1-inch binder for math, something inexpensive is fine. 
  • You will find out from each specific team the first week of school how many binders/folders they would like you to have.
  • ONE pencil bag/pouch, something inexpensive is fine. 

Classroom Tools

  • TWO one-subject spiral notebooks
  • inexpensive wired headphones/earbuds, not Bluetooth - Earbuds will work best because they will transport with less chance of getting broken.

*Sixth grade is a great time to start using a backpack to carry your binders, folders, books, and homework back and forth between home and school.  Backpacks are to be kept in lockers during the school day.

 *Large Trapper Keepers or zippered binders are not recommended. These have not proven to keep students more organized. We have found that they overwhelm students, and there is not enough room for notes, assignments, and notebooks for all classes. 

• 5 spiral notebooks, 70 or 90 sheets, ELA/Math/Science
• 3- 1.5 inch 3 Ring Binder, Science/Social Studies/Math
• Pencils, pencils, pencils, pencils. Avoid 0.5 lead for mechanical pencils.
