    For the first day of school, please make sure to have ID Cards, a full-size backpack, Chromebook and charger, water bottle, sweater/sweatshirt for the cooler temperatures inside the classroom, and lunch or lunch money. Please label all money before sending it in. All other materials will be provided (see suggested items below). Please be on time for school or early for the bus stops. 

    Some School Items to Consider Getting Are:
