Distance Learning School Supply List
If you have already purchased your school supplies or school toolbox for this school year, please don’t fret, we will need those supplies upon return to in-person learning. If you have not yet purchased school supplies or if you have purchased them and are getting things organized for your child’s dedicated work space, here is a list by grade level of what they will need right away. Please find your grade level tab at the bottom of the document. In addition, if you have any questions we ask that you reach out directly to your child’s homeroom teacher.
**Please also be aware there is a tab for Art Supplies. If you have specific questions, feel free to reach out to Mrs. Nelson, our amazing elementary art teacher.
K-5 Modified School Supplies
If you have already purchased community supplies such as clorox wipes and hand sanitizer, please plan to bring those items to the Modified Miner Merge - Meet & Greet during your scheduled time slot. You will be receiving invitations, to meet your child’s teacher, receive supplies and drop off supplies between the dates of August 19th and August 26th. For families who choose not to come in person there will also be a sign-up for a drive by pick-up/drop-off of supplies.
Family Resources for Distance Learning
Welcome back PRA Miners, we are excited to get this new school year underway. As we head into the start of this school year, partnership with you, as in the spring, takes on a new and more critical role. It is our expectation for ourselves that in order to help you create academic, social and ethical leaders, we need to arm you with the tools and confidence to do so.
This year, we will be sending out weekly resources and videos targeted to specific areas of focus based on the time of year, the phase of learning, and the needs expressed from the community. In addition, we will post a bi-weekly link to gather your feedback on how we are doing and what we need to improve once school is in session.
Listed below are a few resources to help us all get started in a positive direction.
