Shady Grove Middle School Supplies  

 (This document has been revised to reflect the MCPS School Board changes regarding Course-related Fees)

“Every school provides without charge the textbooks, supplementary readers, audio/visual aid, stationery, and materials of instruction necessary to teach the curriculum or needed by the students to demonstrate mastery of curriculum.”

 

This year, as in the past, we will be emphasizing a consistent approach to personal organization for learning.  Please be aware that some teachers may require additional materials for their subject.  Students will be notified of these additions during the first week of school.

 

ALL STUDENTS

Assignment Book: Each student will be given an assignment book from Shady Grove Middle School for their use. This first book is provided without charge. Lost or destroyed assignment books will incur a replacement fee.

 

Personal Supplies: Wide ruled loose-leaf notebook paper, 1 set 8 subject dividers, pencil pouch with three holes, black/blue pens, #2 pencils with erasers, and glue sticks. Ti-34 Multiview calculators will be available for $20 to purchase at the beginning of the school year here at school (OPTIONAL).

 

Physical Education Uniform: It is highly recommended that all students have a change of clothing for physical education class. Purchase of the uniform is optional. Students may wear their own clothing for PE (blue or gray shorts, white or gray t-shirt with no logos, sweatshirt and sweatpants for cold weather). Please make sure that your child’s uniform is marked with his/her name.

 

Other Recommended Supplies:

Students are asked to bring the following items to school as personal student supplies: 3-hole punch that fits in binder, mini stapler w/ staples, mini hand-held pencil sharpener, and a small pair of safety scissors.

 

Students are encouraged to bring their own personal calculator (labeled with name).  However one will be supplied as necessary. Please wait to see what your math teacher suggests.


Students taking Algebra or higher are encouraged to purchase their own graphing calculator. If a student cannot purchase a calculator, one will be loaned to the student for the duration of the course. Any damage to or loss of the loaned calculator will result in a financial obligation.
