Grade 8 Supplies

•  One three inch 3 ring sturdy binder (Tip: We have found that the             Avery “Heavy-Duty” “One Touch” ones are the most durable and         more likely to last the entire year.)

•  Scientific calculator Texas Instruments brand (MUST be labeled              with student name)

•  Pens (blue and black)

•  Number 2 pencils

•  Erasers

•  Set of colored pencils 

•  3 different color highlighters

•  One 3-hole punched zippered pouch to carry writing utensils and           calculator in binder

•  Box of tissues, roll of paper towels, and container of wipes for                 classroom use

•  1 package of subject dividers (5 dividers per package)

•  Large package of white lined composition paper

•  4 book covers (No cloth book covers, please, they ruin the bindings.       A brown paper bag works just fine.)

•  Inexpensive ear buds - to be left in school for science

              •  3 Single subject spiral notebooks – for science and English and                           history (plastic covers last longer.)

             •  Required Book: Please buy Gathering Blue by Lois Lowery and                           have it with you on the first day of school. (You should not read it                       yet!)

  (Glenbrook provides each student with an assignment notebook.)
