Grade Level Supply Lists

The following are suggested supply lists.  One item that we do ask for is a pair of personal earbuds that your child will use with the classroom digital devices.  Your child's teacher will have more information after the beginning of the school year.  Please do not worry if your child does not have the suggested supplies, as we will provide what he or she needs!  Thank you for your support!

Our Community


We live in beautiful, sunny California.  Please make sure that your child wears sunscreen (SPF 15+) on those beautiful sunny days that we enjoy so much!  It is also important for them to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water.

Safety to and from school

North Terrace is a true community school, and we encourage families to walk to and from campus.  We also stress that our parents be extra cautious when driving to and from school.  The following policies are in place for students who would like to ride their bicycles, skateboards, or scooters to school:


- Students in grades 3-8 are allowed to ride their bicycles or scooters to school

- Students in grades 6-8 are allowed to ride their skateboards to school

- All bicycles, scooters, and skateboards must be walked once students are on the sidewalk near campus

- Students must wear helmets per California law

- Students who fail to wear helmets or ride in an unsafe manner will lose the privilege of riding to and from school.


It is strongly recommended that our children walk or ride with an adult.  If that is not possible, please make sure students walk in groups of three or more.  Our children should not walk alone before or after school.




We strive to be bully-free

At North Terrace we expect all members of our community to Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful. Bullying has no place in our community, and we work hard to ensure our community feels safe.  Please talk to your child every day to find out about their day at school.  If they are struggling with        their schoolmates, please communicate with teachers and other staff members as soon as possible. 

Many times our student issues turn out to be misunderstandings or common childhood conflicts that are quickly resolved by communicating with classmates and staff members. 


Bullying, however, is a different matter altogether. 

Bullying is not:

minor teasing;

back-and-forth disagreements;

common childhood conflicts.

 Bullying is:


imbalance of power;


physical, psychological, or verbal;

 may occur via the internet or through cell phones.


If you have any questions or concerns about bullying behaviors, please contact the school immediately and speak to a staff member, your child's teacher or the principal.  The sooner an issue is addressed, the better chance there is of resolving it quickly.


Thank you for working together with us to create and maintain a safe, comfortable learning environment for ALL of our students. And thank you for modeling great behavior for our North Terrace students.  Children learn from our words and actions as well.
