8th Grade Supplies
We look forward to teaching your children next school year! Eighth grade is a great year of academic, social and physical growth for students. The eighth grade team will challenge your children with experiences that will help them develop productive mindsets and critical thinking skills. With the support and encouragement of the eighth grade team, students will develop and refine their organizational skills and work habits. Please help your eighth graders start their year organized and ready to learn by purchasing the supplies listed below. The supplies are tools that will help students organize and secure their schoolwork throughout the year. Thank you!

With our 1:1 Chromebooks this year, students will have the option to organize their language arts resources digitally with folders on their Google Drive instead of using a binder. Please discuss with your children whether a binder or digital system would work best them. Of course, students can also choose to use both the digital and binder systems!
