5th Grade Supply List

Fifth Grade Supply List 2020-21

3 large boxes of Kleenex

1 box of 24 Crayons

72 number 2 pencils*

1 package of pencil top erasers*

1 pair of scissors (Fiskars are the best!)

3 small glue sticks*

5 plain, solid-colored pocket folders without metal tabs

(red, orange, yellow, blue, and purple)

5 dry erase markers

1 large zippered pencil pouch (NO ART BOXES)

1 box of colored pencils (12)*

5 (1-subject) spiral notebooks
(red, orange, yellow, blue, and purple)

1 packages of loose-leaf lined paper (wide ruled)

1 composition notebook

1 dry board eraser or old sock

1 three ring binder with pockets (1 1/2 inch) – not expandable folder type

1 backpack (no rolling backpacks, please)

1 pair of headphones/earbuds (These are available at many Dollar Stores. However, you may want to purchase back-ups, as these are easily broken.)

Boys – 1 box of Ziploc bags (gallon size)
Girls – 1 box of Ziploc bags (quart size)

1 large bottle of hand sanitizer   

1 package of disinfecting wipes

**These items will need to be replenished second semester.  Summer sales are a great time to stock up!


Please do not purchase the expensive zipper type, or multifold (Trapper Keeper) notebooks.  They do not fit in our desks or “cubbies.” Try not to let them talk you in to purchasing extra “novelty” items.  Please be mindful that many of the items are consumable and will need to be replenished during the school year. You might want to pick up a few extra supplies while the “Back to School” sales are going on.  24 crayons, for example, can often be found for well under a dollar during these sales, and the same ones cost $1.75 later on during the year. Pocket folders and an extra binder are always great to keep on hand – they wear out!

We appreciate all of your efforts to have your children ready for another great year at Jeremiah Gray Elementary.
