School Supply Drive

We are asking for help collecting some items for school, this year, to help relieve the burden on parents at back-to-school time.  These items can be collected throughout the year, whenever you wish to donate, but the beginning of the school year is a great time to get them, because they are often discounted around the beginning of the year.  But feel free to tack this flying onto your fridge and just occasionally pick up an item or two, and drop it in the collection basket, or hand it directly to Ms. Anita


SUPPLIES these items are on the supply list that are part of our "Stash" (all pooled together and used by all students).  Some students are not able to provide all of the items below, so any help here will offset the need for their parents to spend that money:

  • Ticonderoga #2 pencils (and, yes, it's kind of important to get the Ticonderoga brand, they work best in the sharpeners)

  • packages of pencil-end erasers

  • Glue-stick packs (at least 6 individual sticks)

  • 4 oz. Elmer’s glue bottles

  • 3x5 cards (with lines) (white, please)

  • boxes of Kleenex/tissues

  • hand sanitizer (preferably with Aloe)

  • rolls of paper towels

  • Notebook paper

  • paper plates and/or bowls

  • assorted plastic flatware

  • graph Paper

  • assorted colored construction paper

  • wide-tip whiteboard markers (this is an almost constant need!)

  • narrow-tip whiteboard markers (this is an almost constant need!)

  • Items for the prize bin (check out the party favor section!)



The following items will be needed on an ongoing basis for our 'Maker Space' (part of our STEAM exposure - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) - These items do NOT have to be new, they can be 'extras, you have laying around'  And other times that can be used for creative building and construction could be useful too... such as old pieces of (clean) foil, toilet paper tubes, and paper towel tubes, etc.
