School Supply List
Stores are all ready running school supply adds, so we wanted to make available the basic school supply list for each grade level.
It is also a good practice to keep some additional supplies at home to replenish during the year.
(Individual Teachers May Have Additional Items Needed For Their Classroom. They Will Let You Know At Orientation In August If Other Items Are Needed.)
The teachers and staff of Ruth Upson want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of the parents, grandparents, community partners, and everyone else that made out teachers feel appreciated. This has been a difficult year for students and teachers alike, and all of the gifts and notes of thanks have been greatly appreciated.
A special thank you to the following who went above and beyond and showed support for the entire school faculty and staff:
The Pound Family, The Martinez Family, The Smith Family, The Libero Family, The Butler Family, The Nelson’s Family (Ms. Haas), Dr. Spinner, Riverstone Community Church, JustSchoolinLife, M.I.E. Knights Basketball, Kona Ice, and our very own wonderful Mr. Carter
Catch of Wave of Great Books
Summer vacation is just around the corner, and there's no better way to chill out after a day of fun in the sun than with a great book. Every student received 3 FREE books thanks to READ USA. But what will you do when your child has finished them? Below are some great resources to keep your child reading over the summer. Remember, the summer reading goal is 1,000 minutes. Every child that meets this goal will receive a prize when we return in the fall!
