Orientation will be held on August 25th at 8am.  Please report directly to the Lake Elkhorn Cafeteria to check in and receive materials.  Students/parents will review student schedules, locker assignments, meet our friendly and welcoming staff and school administration, and tour the school, etc.  We looking forward to meet you! 


School Supply List

Each student will be given a Student Planner at no cost.

Parents: Throughout the year, your childís teacher(s) will identify items for donation that will be appreciated. One such item is boxes of tissues for classroom use. If you would like to donate these, please send them in with your child. Thank you.    

The TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphing Calculator will be used regularly in your childís class. Graphing calculators are an important technology used in Howard County mathematics courses beginning with pre-algebra and extending through the end of the mathematics course sequence. Although students will be provided with a graphing calculator for use in school and have the ability to borrow one for out of school use, students are best served by having a personal calculator and becoming very familiar with how it is used to address a number of different type of mathematics problems. Students who go on to take mathematics courses in college will often be able to use the same calculator for college course work. Pleae see the attached supply list for Middle School students 6th-8th grade.
