Hi! Welcome to Mrs. Pugh's Second Grade!
We have a super-busy and super-fun year ahead of us! In order to start the year out right, I have put together a checklist of school supplies your child will need. This list is slightly different from the one sent home at the end of last year, which is a generic list sent to all students.
I have indicated changes from the Kolling list for my class in red. Sorry for any inconvenience, but every teacher is different! If "Bookstore" is indicated, please buy the items there. That will insure a uniform size and type for every child. The Homework Assignment Notebook will be handed out in the classroom on the first day of school. Except for the flash drive, your child should have all of his or her supplies at school on the first day. This will allow us to get ourselves organized right away and be ready to learn.
Please do not send anything other than what is listed below due to an extreme shortage of storage space. If a brand preference is listed, it is because there really is a difference--please try to buy that brand.
PLEASE-- if you do not want to be replacing your child's expensive supplies , take a few minutes, open up the packages, and write your child's name or initials on EVERY item (every pencil, every glue stick, every eraser, etc., including the outside of the backpack and lunchbox) with a permanent marker! You would not believe how many supplies are found and never claimed in a classroom every day! Obviously, things that are shared by all children, like the tissue boxes, Ziploc bags, sheet protectors, and wet wipes do NOT need names written on them.
Give your child the tools he/she needs to be successful! At home, it is a good idea to have a desk or other specified area for your child to do his/her homework. Please buy extra school supplies while they are on sale and keep them at home in your child's desk or homework area. Things like pencils, crayons, ruler, paper, scissors, glue, erasers, a pencil/crayon sharpener, and a nice box with a lid to keep them all in are necessities for regular types of homework and home projects at any grade. Having a stapler, tape dispenser, and a hole punch available in the home will also be useful to the whole family at times.
For additional information, please visit my classroom website regularly. I also have a Wish List for donations if you are so inclined! The link is http://www.teacherlists.com/schools/22388-kolling-elementary-school/13912-mrs-pugh/mrs-pugh-class/wish-list.
School starts on August 14. I look forward to meeting you at Parent Night on Wednesday, Aug. 16 at 6pm. More information will be sent home after school starts.
