    Yay! You found my website!

    Please don't stress over getting school supplies the first week of school! I will provide each student with everything they need in class. Below you will find information on what I am providing to start the school year. If you would like to provide items for the class that will be listed below also. Thank you in advance for your support!

    Mrs. Rucker will provide: 

    • Homework folder which will include a pencil pouch with a pencil, eraser, dry-erase pen, pencil sharpener, and eraser. 
    • Please see below regarding 3-Ring Binders

    deskPlease send students to SCHOOL with: 

    *Since I know many students like to have 3-ring binders, parents can choose to purchase these. However, due to desk space they will be stored in backpacks and only used for storing and transporting papers. The red homework folder I provide will be what we use for daily homework. Please feel free to email mrucker@murrieta.k12.ca.us if you have any questions.
