Hi Room 23 Families,          Week of September 1, 2014
Welcome to Week 1!
Welcome to the first week of third grade. There will be lots of information coming home in the days to come. Please make sure that you check your child's backpack and binder each day to look for papers needing signatures and useful information.
This year, Back to School Night will be on September 11. Time is not yet set and I will let you know as soon as I do. Hopefully, every parent will attend. If you cannot make it, try to send a representative as much will be discussed, explained, and papers will need signatures.
Here is a list of supplies that your child will need by the beginning of the second week of school:
Back To School Room 23 Classroom Supplies

This year all Room 23 third graders will be asked to use a binder to help organize materials, ongoing work, and assignments. Binders also help students get used to using materials they will need in subsequent grades.

Please try to get the same items that are on the list if you can. If not, try to come close. I will have a very limited amount of the following items, if needed.


  • A binder with, at least, a 2” spine; Velcro or zippered binders work well
  • 5 page separators with tabs
  • A zipper pouch for pencils, erasers, scissors, etc.

 Although most items are supplied by our school, the following items are always needed to supplement our materials.  Please donate what you would like to Room 23 throughout the school year.  Thank you.


  • Tissues (we need tons of these)                                                 
  • Glue Sticks
  • Copy Paper (white/bright colored)                                                    
  • Small Post Its
  • Ticonderoga #2 pencils (the best by far)
  • Erasers (the white polymer type is best)
  • 3 Hole plastic page protectors for inside binders
  • “Donut” stickers for torn paper holes

 I look forward to meeting each and every one of you. Enjoy the remaining days of summer.

Mrs. Serafino
