At East Kingston Elementary School, we feel strongly that the school should supply the materials that you’re child will need for learning in school. We have lots of pencils, markers, crayons, colored pencils, glue sticks, scissors, folders, paints, paper, pencil boxes etc. built into the budget. We have soft tissues and cleaning materials too.
We use a pocket on the back of our chairs for storage – so there really isn’t room
for extra stuff.
When you see those Back To School sales, just walk right by.
Things your child will need, if possible:
A backpack with a full change of clothes in the bottom for that unexpected mud puddle or milk spill.
A Reuseable Water Bottle We no longer have a water vending machine.
We no longer purchase plastic or paper cups for regular use. Kids will need a reuseable water bottle with their name on it. Its much better for the environment than the clear plastic prepackaged waters.
Thinking ahead - First graders love to get out in that first snow storm -
The rule is that snow pants and boots are required for playing in the snow up on the playground. The nurse does not have extra. (Well, maybe one pair.) It would be great if everyone had some for the first snow.
