School Supplies

Student School Supply List

Each grade level has sets of some basic classroom supplies.  These are issued to the students as needed.  (These are additional to the supplies each student must provide.)  All art supplies are provided. (paints, brushes, paper, etc.)  All supplies listed here “as required” should be maintained throughout the school year.  (especially important for paper, index cards, pencils, erasers)  Extra supplies, gadgets, nonstandard types of pencils, erasers, pens, etc. should not be brought to school.  All students are required to have an “Earthquake Preparedness Kit”.  Grades 3 through 8 will be required to cover textbooks (approx 4-6 per class).
