Supply lists (17-18)

Mohawk 7B supply list for the 2017-18 school year

August 2017—

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are looking forward to working with your child this year. As part of the Mohawk 7 team, we are hoping that your child will find this school year successful, challenging, and enjoyable. As the end of August approaches and those “Back to School” ads appear, we would like to suggest the following items listed below.

(2) tissue boxes for homeroom
(1) set of earbuds / headphones for ALL classes
A lot of pens and #2 pencils for ALL classes
(1) 5 subject spiral notebook for Language Arts and Social Studies
(1) package of colored pencils (to keep in class) for Language Arts and Social Studies
(2) highlighters (to keep in class) for Language Arts and Social Studies
(1) 1 subject spiral notebook for Math
(1) 1 ½ inch binder for Math
(2) pocket folders - 1-Red, 1-not red for Math
(1) TI-30X IIS Scientific Calculator* for Math
*We would like to strongly suggest that you purchase the TI-30X IIS scientific calculator for your child for use in both math and science classes. Calculators will be available during math class time but we cannot send calculators home with students. Due to the change in NYS requirements for eighth grade and the need to begin using a scientific calculator in seventh grade, we feel it is important for each student to have his/her own calculator for math and science, especially for home use. We will be doing in-class calculator lessons with the students using this particular model and it would be most beneficial to the students if they were able to follow these instructions with the same model. This model allows the user to see what has been entered on the display screen.

Please also provide a check made out to FMS for $3.50, which will cover the cost of the assignment notebook (a-pad). We hope to have the opportunity to meet you at the seventh grade Open House, which will be on Monday, September 18, 2017.

Students taking French, German, Italian or Spanish should have the following materials for their World Language class:
8-10 dividers
Writing utensils
Loose leaf paper or notebook
Headphones or earbuds
Expo (dry erase) markers
Index cards

Important Locker and Lock Information
All returning 7th grade students in Mohawk are expected to bring back the lock they were assigned the previous year and brought home over the summer. New 7th grade students will be provided one, free-hanging, combination lock in Homeroom at the start of the year. Students are responsible for their provided lock for their entire career at Farnsworth Middle School. At the end of the school year, students will take their assigned lock home for the summer and bring it back for the next school year.
● Students who misplace or lose this lock will need to purchase a replacement. We encourage them to purchase a school-issued lock at a cost of $5at their house office.
● Students must purchase their own lock for the locker they will use in the Physical Education locker room.

Physical Education at FMS
Welcome to Physical Education at FMS. Each student will be assigned a locker in which they should store their clothes/belongings. The following items are needed for physical education class:

● Combination padlock (please, no key locks)
● Change of clothes (shorts/sweats, t-shirt/sweatshirt)
