Middle School Supply List for Orientation

Attention middle school students and families:
We are looking forward to seeing you on orientation day! Come meet and greet your teachers and see your friends that you’ve missed all summer! Bring your smiles, but don’t bring all your school supplies just yet! It can be a little crazy and frantic with beginning of the year excitement on orientation day, so here are some suggestions of what to bring on orientation day and what to bring on the first day of school.

On orientation day, DO bring your locker shelves and any locker decorations you might want to put inside like magnetic white message boards, magnetic pencil cups, mirrors, or decorative magnets. Feel free to set up your locker in preparation for the first day of school! Please also bring items from the supply list such as tissues, wipes, hand sanitizer, and paper towels and leave them in your homeroom classroom.

Use the list below to identify what items to bring on the first day. Your teachers will guide you through setting up and labeling your materials during the first week of school. Remember to save a few brown paper bags from the grocery store as they make great book covers. Check out the following for step-by-step directions on how to make a book cover from a brown paper grocery bag.

Please click on the Supply List link below which details what bring on orientation, what to bring on the first day of school, and what to leave at home for use later in the year.

Middle School Supply List to Prepare for Orientation Day

Summer Learning Requirements

Recognizing that our curriculum during the school year is rigorous and that expectations are high for student learning, there is great value in the children having a respite during the months of summer.  On the other hand, studies have shown that students lose ground during the long vacation if not provided an opportunity to keep their skills sharp.  With these two perspectives in mind, as in prior years, the teachers have crafted a balanced plan specific for our school.

(Note: Parents should select the summer learning assignments that correspond to the grade that their child will be entering in the fall.  For example, a student entering second grade would complete the Summer Book Program for rising 2nd graders.  A child entering third grade would complete the assignments outlined for rising 3rd graders.)

School Supplies 2017-2018

As a service to parents, we partnered with Educational Products to provide pre-packaged orders of supplies by grade level.  I wish to thank Mrs. Johnson coordinated this project for us once again and who incorporated a number of changes that we hope you found to be beneficial.

There were two ways to purchase school supplies for the coming year:

  1. You can do your shopping on your own using our 2017-18 School Supply List as your guide.
  2. You could choose to purchase supplies online through our EPI Online School Supply Packs Program through July 15th. If you selected this option, your school supplies will be in your classroom when you arrive for orientation.

Middle School Introduces 1:1 Device Program

All Saints is pleased to announce that we will transition to a one-to-one device program in the middle school beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year. Students in the program will have access to a Chromebook for their use throughout the school day and at home.

In advance of the new year, 6th & 7th grade parents and students are asked to read and discuss the following program handbook:  One to One Technology Policy Handbook 2017.

What are the next steps?

On Orientation Day, 6th & 7th grade parents and students are asked to visit the Computer Lab and submit the following:

  • Technology Acceptable Use Policy (p. 23)
  • Chromebook Technology Use and Support Fee Form (p. 24/Fee of $125.00 payable to All Saints Catholic School)
  • Chromebook Policy Handbook Form (p. 25)

When will my child receive a Chromebook?

The Chromebooks will be distributed to students during the first two weeks of school after the teachers have reviewed and discussed policies and procedures.

We look forward to implementing this program that will continue to transform the teaching and learning process at All Saints.
