Class Supply List
NOTE: MCS Color Coding Organization System
In an effort to help parents, students, and teachers get the school year off to a great start, MCS has developed a system to color code some of the supplies that students will be using. Beginning this school year, student’s grades 3-12 are encouraged to use a new color coding system to help improve organization. Since organizational skills are essential to success in school, implementing this program at an early on is essential. To keep matters simple, each course or subject will be assigned a color so that notebooks, folders, and book covers can be quickly identified by students, whether at school or at home. The subjects and their corresponding colors are as follows:
SUBJECTS W/ CORRESPONDING COLORS:
MATH- BLUE (NAVY OR DARKER BLUE)
SOCIAL STUDIES- RED
SPANISH - TURQUOISE (OR OTHER LIGHT BLUE)
HEALTH/ LIFE SKILLS- ORANGE
Although it is possible to purchase book covers in a variety of colors, brown paper bags that are cut to fit can be very durable and cost-effective. For example, brown paper book covers can be color coded on the covers and binding using colored markers.
Keep in mind when purchasing spiral notebooks, that many teachers prefer/require notebooks with perforated edges. School agendas are another valuable and important tool for helping students stay organized.
Teachers at different grade levels may have additional or different requirements for certain courses, so please be sure to check the supply list for your child’s grade level before purchasing materials. We hope that families will find the above information helpful. Working together will make the upcoming school year more organized and less stressful for everyone.
