5th Grade Supply List

5th Grade Supply List

Condit is an AVID Elementary School in 4th, 5th & 6th Grade!

In its 30-plus years, AVID has proven time and time again that, when given a system of rigorous curriculum and strategic support, students can be academically successful. AVID Elementary is a foundational component of the AVID College Readiness System and supports AVID’s mission and vision to provide a comprehensive model of success for all students, from elementary through higher education.

Based on the same learning foundation that underlies AVID Secondary, AVID Elementary is designed to be embedded into the daily instruction of all elementary classrooms, across entire grade levels, to impact schoolwide structures. Like AVID Secondary, AVID Elementary Essentials focus on the four necessary areas to ensure that all students are poised for academic success: Instruction, Culture, Leadership, and Systems.

AVID Elementary incorporates:

Student Success Skills – encompassing communication skills (e.g. listening, speaking, writing), self-advocacy skills, note-taking strategies, critical thinking, and study skills. 

Organizational Skills – both mental and physical; students learn to use organizational tools, as well as learn and practice skills around time management and goal-setting. 

WICOR Lessons – emphasize instruction on writing to learn, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading to learn in all content areas. 

Partnerships – among students, classrooms, grade levels, schools, feeder patterns, families, and communities.

When preparing your student to be an AVID Elementary student, please note that the following organizational supplies are necessary for each student:

Dear Incoming 5th Grade Students and Parents,

Welcome to 5th Grade! The fifth grade team greatly appreciates it when our students start the school year with the appropriate supplies.  Items marked with an * (asterisk) are required for AVID Elementary. We realize that not everyone is able to do so, and we will provide supplies to those who need them.

There are also items in our classroom that we use frequently, and we welcome any donations of those supplies throughout the school year.  Please know that we expect nothing and appreciate everything!

Thank you so much for helping us prepare and organize our students.


Your Fifth Grade Team
