Moving Pencil


    Welcome to First Grade


    Mill Creek Elementary



                  The First Grade Team would like to welcome you and your child to Mill Creek Elementary!  We are all very excited about the opportunity to work with you to make this upcoming school year a success.  We wanted to give you early notice about what supplies your child will need.  We have found that each student benefits from having his/her own supply of school tools.  Those Back to School sales usually start popping up in July, and you’ll now be ready to take advantage of them. 


    Supplies needed for the first day of school:

    • A small supply box (no larger than a cigar box)

    • 3 plastic 2-pocket folder with 3 hole punches, NOT 3-prongs (1 red, 1 blue, 1 green)

    • 1 mesh pencil pouch with 3 hole punches

    • 1 package of 4 low-odor dry erase markers (black only please) OPTIONAL

    • 1 dry-erase board eraser (to be used with your child’s white board – an old sock works perfectly. And it’s freeJ)

    • An old, clean adult shirt or smock to be used during art class

    • A container disinfecting cleaning wipes

    • Headphones (over the head, not earbuds – with AUX plug) for the computer lab.


    General classroom supplies (optional but donations are greatly appreciated):

    • 1 box of tissues

    • Ziplock baggies (gallon size)



    Be sure to label your child’s school supplies so that they may be returned to him/her if misplaced throughout the year.
