Supplies Needed

  • Notebook

       The photo shows a Five Star composition book, hard cover, non-perforated.  It is my favorite, of the several types I have tried.  But, they     are not easy to find.  This year I had to order them online for about $6.  They also make a poly cover one that sells for about $2.50 at   Walmart.  Mead Five Star is durable, and will most likely hold up all year long.

      Any composition book should work, but I would not recommend a spiral notebook, or any other type of perforated notebook.














    Supplies Needed for IPC:  We have always shared scissors, glue, calculators, pens, sharpeners, staplers, etc.  Due to the COVID-19 virus, and our attempt to prevent cross-contamination, it is very important that each student have their own supplies this year, kept in their backpack.


    personal scissors

    #2 pencils


    handheld pencil sharpener

    composition book - must not be a spiral notebook

    folder - to keep graded papers in

    highlighters - various colors 

    map pencils

    calculator - simple, inexpensive (+, -, x, /)

    2 bottles of Elmer's glue

    2 roll of paper towels - TURN IN

    optional - clear Scotch tape

    optional - mini personal stapler
