2016-2017 Muscota School Supplies

Hello from the 2016 PA Executive Board.  We hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  
At Muscota, school supplies for the entire school community are purchased by both the school and the parents.  The school’s supply budget is used to purchase new text books for every child, K/1 dry erase boards, take-home reading bags, etc.  Parents are asked to help supplement the supplies that the school provides.
Some of the great benefits of buying school supplies as a community are:
  • Savings with bulk purchasing
  • High quality supplies
  • Ensures that our classrooms receive the appropriate supplies for project-based learning
  • Supports development of our community and consistency in our classrooms
  • EVERYONE can go enjoy another afternoon in the park instead of shopping for school supplies!!
In preparation for the 2016-2017 school year, all school supplies left from last year have been inventoried and the supplies needed are listed in a wish list onAmazon.  The supplies are listed in order of priority, however, all supplies are needed.
We would like to ensure that every classroom is fully equipped with the:
  • Paper, folders and notebooks they need for their academic pursuits
  • Crayons, markers and paints for their artistic vision
  • Construction paper, glue, tape and craft supplies for choice time
We also want to make sure we have a plentiful supply of paper towels and other supplies for every classroom, so our teachers don’t have to reach into their own pocket to purchase them.  Please join the parent community in providing these school supplies!
