  • School Supplies

    Dear P.S. 12 Families,

    As the 2017-2018 school year approaches, we would like to share how we are preparing. Six notebooks and six folders were purchased for each student (reading, writing, math, science, social studies & homework). We have supplied each classroom with many materials including post it notes, highlighters, chart paper, etc. If possible, we encourage families to send each child to school with  individual student supplies. For example, a book bag, pencil box, pencils and glue. Please note that classroom teachers may have specific request. 

    Thank you,
    PS 12 Staff
