School Supplies
Here are the school supply lists for the 2015-16 school year. Scroll through it to find your grade level.  Make sure you order for the upcoming school year. Have fun shopping!


 
KEEP READING
Children should continue to read throughout the summer months to maintain their reading levels.If they don’t read over the summer, their learning stalls or regresses (Cooper, Borman, & Fairchild, 2010). Reading even six books over the summer can maintain a reading level. Reading more than ten books can not only maintain their skills but improve their reading. Reading is a wonderful way to stave off summer boredom and increase students’ vocabulary acquisition, fluency, and background knowledge. Children should select their own books on topics they like, characters they love, or something they know about. Remember it's better to choose something that feels a little too easy rather than something that's too hard. If you need some good book suggestions, check out the summer reading list below. Happy reading!
