School Supply Lists for 2017-2018 School Year

    • In preparation for the school year, below is the supply list for  each grade in the elementary. Please look at the list that is specific to the grade your child will be entering the next school year.

Please read all the way to the end of the list!

For Middle and High School students, we recommend a supply of single subject notebooks and folders – at least 1 each of solid red, green and blue, as well as pencils, pens and all the related accessories. High School students must have a scientific calculator. Middle school students should have a basic calculator. Calculators will not be provided by the school.  On the first day of school, specific teachers will be giving each class of list of materials that the students are expected to have.   If you have questions, you will be able to email your child’s teacher.

Elementary students must have non-wheeled  backpacks to protect the new wooden student storage area.  Please ensure that your elementary children have the type of backpacks that are carried, without wheels.
