School supplies

Elementary students

Many schools have their own school supply lists and/or sell pre-packaged supplies at the school. We recommend that you check with your school before making any purchases. Schools will often post supply information on school websites.

You may also see general school supply lists below. Additional supplies may be requested by the teacher during the year for special projects.

Middle and high school students

Middle and high school students are encouraged to purchase basic supplies such as paper, pens, pencils, etc., before the first day of school. Teachers will let students know which specific supplies they need.

General school supply lists

See the following general school supply lists to determine what students need to bring to school. Please mark all supplies with the student's name.
