8th Grade Supply List
You DO NOT need a large zipper/Velcro binder in 8th grade since our teachers prefer that you have a smaller binder or a folder for each class.
Please use the list below in order to be best prepared for your 8th grade year.
ELA: Heavy duty binder or folder(s) with pockets & a spiral notebook
Math: Folder with pockets (2 or 3 as they will wear out), an at-home calculator (such as a TI-30XIIS (costs approx. $12-$15))
The textbook is online so internet at home will be beneficial for the interactive pieces to the book
Social Studies: Folder with pockets
Science: 1” or 1½” heavy duty binder (different color than other classes), a 70 Page Spiral Notebook (NOT a 3 or 5 Subject notebook)
Portions of curriculum are online so internet at home will be beneficial for the interactive simulations
Algebra: 4 AAA batteries & 4 folders with pockets (1 for each quarter since they wear out)
Advisory: 1 box of tissues (Kleenex) & 1 container of Clorox Wipes (or other brand)
Physical Education/Health: Running shoes, socks, shorts at least fingertip length, and a roomy T shirt. Sweat pants and capris are fine. Yoga pants do not fit the school dress code. A lock will be provided.
