Colored pencils
Loose-leaf notebook paper
Pencils, pens and multicolored highlighters
1 bottle of hand sanitizer
1 box of Kleenex
1 container of Clorox/Lysol wipes OR 1 can of Lysol

May be a good idea to have a portable charger for your phone since you will not be able to charge your phone while in class.

Also bring a water bottle to school!  The water stations are available but the water fountains are not.
