Kindergarten Supply List

2018-19 Southgate Kindergarten Supply List

Dear Kindergarten Parents:

The first day of school is an exciting one for your child.  In order to make the transition from home to school more comfortable, the following suggestions are being offered.

Your child should ride to school on the bus.  Our bus drivers are very kind and have experience in handling fearful children.  Some will be tearful on the departure from home, but their fears will be comforted upon their arrival to our classroom.  Please do not accompany your child to school on the first day. From experience we have found it only increases a child’s angst.  A good night’s sleep will help your child enjoy the first day of school. 

Each child is asked to bring a light, nutritious snack and drink every day, beginning the first day of school.

Your child will need:

  • a large sturdy book bag
  • two (2) hardcover, marble composition notebooks, (primary composition notebook with lines
  • and spaces for a picture preferred).
  • Crayola markers- box of 10.
  • eight (8) large glue sticks.
  • two (2) pocket folders.
  • three (3) 24-pack Crayola crayon packs.
  • $3.16 party money in an envelope labeled with your child’s name.
  • one (1) box of gallon sized freezer bags with zipper top, (Boys only).
  • one (1) box of quart sized freezer bags with zipper top, (Girls only).
  • three (3) large boxes of tissues to share with the class.
  • 1 set of inexpensive headphones in a zip-lock bag labeled with child’s name
  • and teacher for Computer Room use.
  • 1 extra set of clothes, (pants, shirt, socks, underwear) labeled and in a zip lock bag.
  • 1 large container of Lysol wipes, (Girls only).
  • 1 medium/large bottle of hand sanitizer, (Boys only).

All clothing and school supplies should be labeled with your child’s name.

Kindergarten Orientation is scheduled for Thursday, August 30th, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. in the Southgate cafeteria. Kindergartners will meet their teacher, visit their classroom, take a bus ride through the neighborhood and enjoy a snack. Please complete the “Kindergarten Orientation Form” when it comes in the mail, and return it to Southgate by Friday, August 24, 2017.

We are looking forward to a challenging and fun year ahead.
