    Eighth Grade Supply List 2019-2020

    We have found that some middle school students purchase binders and backpacks that are too large for our lockers. The dimensions of our school lockers are as follows: 10” W x 34” H x 13” D. Please bring only supplies and backpacks that will fit into the lockers. Additional items not on this list may be requested by some teachers, however these items will be fine to start the year off prepared.

    8th Grade:

    • One 3-ring binder (2½” wide) to contain all subjects OR three 1½“ binders.
    • One 3-ring binder (1½”) for Science
    • One set of dividers for each binder
    • One spiral notebook for Math
    • Inexpensive, basic calculator. Algebra students only will need a graphing calculator. Put your name on it!
    • Sturdy pencil pouch/supply box. Bring this with you to class every day! It should hold most of the non-paper items on this list.
    • Colored pencils (a set of 8 or 12 is fine)
    • Pencils and personal mini sharpener. Keep 2 to 4 pencils with you at all times. Expect to use at least 24 pencils this year. Try to have #2 pencils. They are easier to read and required for some tests you will take this year. Mechanical pencils are okay, but you must bring your own spare lead every day.
    • Ink pens. Keep 2 to 4 pens with you at all times. Expect to need up to 12 pens this year. Please have some blue ink and black ink pens. Remember, Sharpies and other permanent ink markers are not allowed at Madison.
    • Highlighters (the thin kind in 4 different colors)
    • Loose leaf lined, 3-hole punched, notebook paper. Expect to need 200+ sheets this year. This paper won’t all fit in your binder, so plan to keep most of it in your locker and some of it at home. The width of the lines does not matter. Please stick to basic white, the fancy colors are harder for teachers to read.
    • Three single-subject hard cover (100-page minimum, thread bound, not spiral) composition books
    • One package of 3” x 5” lined index cards
    • One package of 3” x 3” Post-it note pads
    • Two glue sticks
    • Two rolls of clear tape
    • Ruler (metric/standard 12 inch with holes to put in binder)

    All grades: If you would like to bring in any of the following to your Advisory teacher to share, it would be much appreciated! 😊

    • Box of tissues
    • hand sanitizer
    • #2 pencils
    • roll of clear tape (without dispenser)
