  • 6 large glue sticks (UHU or Elmer’s brand)

  •  Complete set of extra clothing to be kept at school in a bag labeled with your child’s name

(Grade 1 do not have desks and therefore your child will not have a place in which he/she will have keep a pencil case. We will share all the supplies, same as in kindergarten)
