School Supplies

School Supplies

All students will be provided with a laptop and Longfellow student planner to record assignments (distribution date for planners TBD). This will enable students to access their class instruction and teacher support. Before you purchase school supplies, think about what kind of organizational system works best for you. Middle school students take seven classes- some students may want to use one binder for odd day classes and another for even day classes. Some may want folders or notebooks for each class. Once the school year starts, your student's teachers may require some additional materials, but you will always have plenty of time to get them.
