Nut Free Classroom

We have some learners with severe nut allergies, so our classroom is designated as a nut free zone. Please do not send any food to school that contains nuts. Thank you for helping us keep our classroom safe for all learners!

Classroom Wish List

If you see this and can help out, I would greatly appreciate it!


Post It Notes - the learners will be using a lot of these this year to track their thinking as they read books and document it in their journals!


Expo (dry erase) markers - our tables are whiteboard surfaces and we can use them to write on and solve math problems!


Thank you in advance!
