September calendar–updated

This is an updated calendar for September.  Click on calendar to view.  I realized the original one I posted had some errors with the specials (art, gym, music, STEAM).  It is not a continuous order due to Early Release days.  Sorry about the confusion.

*durable 2-pocket folder to use as home folder (laminated or plastic)

*70 page single-subject spiral notebook

*Crayola crayons 24 pk.

*Expo markers 4 pk.

*beach towel to keep at school for Brain Break (beach towel will be returned mid-year)

*non-tie tennis shoes to keep at school for gym

*headphones/earbuds (These will be returned at the end of the school year–please label headphones with your child’s name and put in a Ziploc bag.)

Optional items to donate that are always needed in our classroom:

*Glue Sticks

*Ziploc bags (gallon or extra large 2 gallon size)
