Supply List for 5th Grade

Wow! Can you believe that July is already here? I realize that we are not even halfway through summer break, but do you know what will start appearing in stores right after the Fourth of July? That’s right: school supplies! Even as an adult, seeing those huge displays of brand new notebooks, folders, highlighters, pens, and pencils fills me with excitement and anticipation for the new school year. In case you are as eager as I am to get your new school supplies, I am including a list of supplies that you will need for the new school year.

I hope you have a safe and fun Fourth of July!

  • (1) highlighter
  • (1) scissors
  • (1) package of colored pencils

Below are additional supplies that kids often like to bring for their private use.

  • erasers
  • colored marking pen for editing/correcting (not black or blue)

If you’d like to help out, below are additional supplies that you can donate for communal use. 

  • Tissues… lots of tissues… 😉
