School Supplies for 5-6

Expected Materials for 5th-6th Grade, 2016-2017

Note—This year the Alder Classroom is a NUT-FREE zone. Please do not send ANY items containing tree nuts or peanuts to school. We understand that this is an inconvenience, but our students’ safety is our first concern. These allergies are LIFE-THREATENING, so give the students and their families the gift of knowing they are safe at school. Please contact Sigrid or Joel with any concerns or questions
