Intermediate Supply List
When making your back-to-school purchases please consider that backpacks must fit into a locker (backpacks with wheels are often too large). Students will have many materials to keep in their space, so large binders/organizers/portfolios, while popular, will take up unnecessary space.
This year, every intermediate student will be provided with a “tool box” designed to be used across learning experiences in both the pod classroom and humanities. In an effort to mitigate spread of germs through shared use of materials, each box will contain the following items:
These supplies will be replenished by Falk as necessary. Besides the “tool box” items mentioned above, students will be provided with any necessary folders, journals, and notebooks. Third grade students will also be provided with a boomerang folder (several folders bound together as one) that will be used for every subject. This is to ensure their assignments, letters, handouts, etc. are organized in one set of folders. The 3rd graders take their boomerang folders home each night and bring them back to school every day. Fourth and fifth grade students will also be provided with a daily planner to use to manage homework assignments.
We are asking each family to provide the following items for their intermediate-aged child(ren):
- A pencil case (small to medium in size), to be kept at the student’s desk.
- Child’s preferred style of pencil(s), to be kept in the pencil case.
- A box of tissues that will be part of their own personal supply. (Please no small travel packs. A full box will fit at desks, in lockers, or in cubbies.)
- Labeled, refillable water bottle to be used throughout the day and at lunch. Students will not have access to the water fountains, but will be able to utilize the touchless water bottle refill stations.
- In addition to the clean mask they wear to school each day, we recommend each student keep a spare face mask, in a labeled Ziploc bag, with their personal school supplies. When selecting cloth face masks for purchase and use, remember they should: fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face; be secured with ties or ear loops; include multiple layers of fabric; allow for breathing without restriction; and be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape. Face masks should be laundered after a day’s wear, so having enough at home to rotate through the week is best practice.
