School Supply List

June 3rd, 2016

Linked below is our school supply list for the 2016-2017 school year.  We are strongly encouraging all students to use zipper binders, and, if you can find one with a shoulder strap, that is much easier for your student.

8th Grade Girls Runner-Up Team
We led until the very last event and there are many “if only” scenarios
we could go through, but Springfield Washington had to accomplish
multiple unlikely wins in the last two events to catch us.  They did, and
we made it as difficult as possible for them.  It was a great and exciting contest.
Congratulations to all our team members for the hard work and time put
in.  Our feature in the State program thanked all Parent, Volunteers, Athletes
and Coaches and I repeat that here.
