School Supplies

Dear Student and Family,  

I hope that you are having a wonderful summer and excited to begin a new school year. At The Emerson School we are looking forward to sharing a terrific year with you. We know that you are eager to get your school supplies together, so we prepared a school supply list to get you started.


The basics

No. 2 pencils

Colored pencils

Pencil sharpener (hand-held with a top to collect shavings)


Ballpoint pens


6 composition notebooks

Loose-leaf notebook paper (Teachers can be picky about paper. Some middle schools ask that students use the college-ruled variety.)

A ruler with English and metric measurements


Organizational helpers


2 inch binder

A pencil case that fits in a binder

Binder dividers (The kinds with pockets are good for loose papers.)

Pocket folders

Folders that fit in binders

A small notebook to record assignments

Jump Drive

A calendar for scheduling assignments

A sturdy supportive backpack


Study aids


Index cards, ruled and unruled (These are great for making flash cards.)


A calculator

A protractor


**This is a general list to get started. Once school starts, teachers may have specific supplies they need. **
