School Supply Lists

Here are the school supply lists for 2012-2013.

Please note that if your child is entering 1st grade, you will need to wait until you receive your teacher assignment letter(s) in order to know which list to use. The lists for the 1st grade teachers vary slightly. Additionally, if your child is in a multi-age class, she/he will have a different list of supplies to purchase.

If your child is already in a multi-age class, please use the 2nd grade supply list for your supplies.

Open PTA Positions

  • Safety Committee Coordinator – new committee!
  • Fall Book Fair Family Fun Night Coordinator (dinner and bake sale)
  • Pie Sale (before Thanksgiving)
  • Artist in Residence Coordinator (typically, but not necessarily, 5th grade parent)
  • Boyden Buzz Art Director (familiarity with Pages program a plus)

Strawberry Fields E-Loop

First, many thanks to our ever level-headed Julie Burch for serving as the e-loop coordinator for several years! We will miss you and your family!

Second, this summer, we will be rebooting our e-loop. We will continue to use an e-loop to communicate to our broader community (current families, alums, other interested parties) but we are taking the opportunity to clean up the member list. This will likely require you to go through a very quick re-registering process. Stay tuned!


On behalf of the Seth Boyden PTA, thank you for another GREAT year! Have a fun, relaxing, safe summer!

Susie Adamson
PTA President
