In fourth grade, students will be asked to use both a cinch sack and a regular, large backpack. The cinch sack is used to carry their supplies as they change classes and needs to be big enough to hold composition books, a homework folder, and their pencil case. It can be any type of cinch sack, similar to those given out for free at races, special events and camps, Heavy duty cinch sacks purchased at the store tend to last an entire year, while the “free” versions are less durable and usually need to be replaced at some point. The large backpack is used to transport items such as folders, books, water bottles, lunches, etc. between school and home.
