    Dear Families and Students,
    Welcome to fourth grade! I am so excited to have you in my class this year. To best prepare you for the first day of school I have listed some ideas to get you ready.
    I will supply you with a white binder and agenda that you will use as the main form of communication between home and school (just as you did with your green folder in years past). The school will also provide you with any learning materials needed for day to day assignments. We do have a wish list if you would like to donate any items to the classroom, but this is not mandatory.
    Please come prepared the first day with:
    - a backpack (preferably one without wheels as we store them on a small rack in the back of the room.)
    -a pencil pouch that can go into your 3 ring white binder
    - a water bottle
    - a healthy snack (no candy, chips, cookies or sugary snacks)
    - if you are buying lunch, please place lunch money on your account using www.myschoolbucks.com
    - a big smile
    Please refrain from bringing:
    - mechanical pencils
    - large pencil boxes
    - gum and/or candy
    - toys or any other items that can distract from the learning environment
    If any additional items are needed, you will be contacted during the school year.  
    I look forward to meeting you and to a wonderful year!
    Ms. McKinley
