Supply list.

I hope everyone is having a fun and relaxing summer.  The start of the school year is rapidly approaching and there are already many great deals on school supplies.

When shopping for school supplies, please purchase the following:

  • 2 two-pocket folders (very important for organizational skills)
  • Composition notebook (marble)
  • Grid notebook
  • Thin EXPO dry erase markers
  • Sharpened pencils (mechanical pencils are great) and erasers
  • Markers, crayons, and colored pencils (for projects)
  • Highlighters
  • Scissors
  • Glue sticks
  • 4 spiral notebooks
  • Hand-held pencil sharpener
  • Boxes of tissues, hand soap, and hand sanitizer are welcome at any time throughout the school year!

Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation! See you in August!

Healthy snacks.

Are you looking for healthy snack ideas for the summer and for the start of the new school year?  The SPS Wellness Policy states that all teachers will be given a list of recommended classroom snack foods and beverages developed by the Food and Nutrition Services Department.  Here is the recommended list of healthy snacks.

Field trip chaperones.

If you have volunteered to chaperone, please check your child’s yellow homework folder for information about chaperoning our upcoming field trips.  All chaperones must have a CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) form on file from this year.  The form can be downloaded here.  Please click on “CORI Request Form”.  Along with the completed form you must include a copy of U.S. government issued photographic ID, such as a driver’s license or a U.S. passport.  You can return the information in your child’s yellow homework folder or to the John F. Kennedy School main office.  Thank you!
