Tawasentha 7C supply list for the 2017-18 school year

August 2017—

Dear Parent/Guardian:

We are looking forward to working with your child in September. As part of the Tawasentha 7C team, we hope that your child will find this new year successful, challenging AND enjoyable! As the end of August approaches and those “Back-to-School” ads appear, we would suggest the following items for Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, and World Language. To keep their literacy skills sharp, students are expected to read regularly over the summer, and they will be responsible for bringing one of the books they read to Language Arts in September. We look forward to getting the chance to meet you at Open House on Monday, September 18.

Important Lock and Locker Information
All returning 7th students in Tawasentha 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. 7th grade 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.
