School Supplies

This list represents the basic supplies needed for the 2021-2022 school year. Some option classes have been listed below but others will be provided by the classroom teacher at the start of the semester.   

Supplies can be left at home or purchased in small quantities as needed. Although most students will have lockers, it would be difficult to fit all the yearly school supplies and coats etc. in it. It is best to send only the supplies needed for general day use, staff will provide notice of any special supplies needed so students can bring them from home.  General day use items would include:  binder with paper, pens/pencils, small amount of markers/pencil crayons, 1 dry erase marker, white out and other supplies for hygiene as needed.

Due to recent situations, we should not be sharing materials such as dry erase markers, pencils etc. All items listed are for student use only - they will not be given to teachers for classroom use and should remain with the student in their backpack or at home and brought to school when necessary. This is why students need only bring a small quantity of the supplies each day. 

General School Supply List:

  • Backpack
  • Over ear headphones or earbuds - (over ear is preferable for overall health of the ear in lieu of ear buds but it is your choice)

Suggested Systems of Organization for Students:

This may vary depending on the grade level of the students but the following represents some ideas on how to organize.  These work especially well for Junior High.  The organizational structure must meet the needs of your child so please consider these as suggestions only, there is no one right system. 

*With recent changes to our LA/Religion courses in Junior high, students will need to bring their LA/Religion materials each day as this is a combined course with the same teacher. Because of this, past systems of Day 1, Day 2 binders will not be effective.

Suggestion 1

2 medium-large binders (this is the top rated suggestion)\

Morning classes both day 1 and day 2

Afternoon classes both day 1 and day 2

Suggestion 2

5 small binders

1 binder for each core subject = 4 small binders

1 binder for option/pe classes = 1 binder

Suggestion 3:  1 large binder for all subjects

 *Please note that students may be able to take materials out of their binders and store at home for final exams after particular units in some classes.  Please consult with the classroom teacher for this option.
