School Supplies

Grade K to 5 Supply Lists for the 2020-2021 school year:

This year we have a contract with a company called "SchoolStarts" to supply our school supplies. You can find the lists below with a Kindergarten Parent Letter and a Grades 1 - 5 Parent Letter with important info. The Grades 1 - 5 lists are set up with two sections. The items on the top section tend to be used up year to year and need to be purchased on an annual basis. The items on the bottom section are items you may have purchased in past years and can be reused. If you DO NOT have these items, they also need to be purchased.  ALL items from both sections need to be brought to school in September.

Ordering Through SchoolStarts - simple and fast

Ordering can be done ONLINE on the SchoolStarts website (MC or VISA), by phone 1-800-580-1868 or by regular mail - print off the appropriate form below, fill it in clearly and completely and send it to SchoolStart  with payment (no cash please). The address is in the Parent Letter. Deadline for ordering via regualr mail is June 17, 2020.
Orders will be accepted until October 1, 2020, however, a $5 late fee will apply after August 1, 2020.

We are NOT accepting any orders at the school.

Log in as a Parent with your password from last year or, if you forgot it, you can "reset" your password. If you are new to ordering, you will need to make a Parent Account. Once you are in, select the correct "School" to order your supplies. You will see a listing for  "Dr. Thomas A Swift Elementary" for Grades 1 - 5 and a "Dr. Thomas A Swift - Kindergarten" listing for Kindergartens only. You do not need to "shop" for individual items, you only need to look for your school name and then select the list you want.


Gr. 1 - 5 supplies purchased through SchoolStart will be delivered to your home at no charge.
Kindergarten supplies will be delivered for no charge to the school by the end of August.

Labelling Supplies

Kindergarten - Please label all supplies and bring them to school on Monday September 14, 2020.
Grades 1 - 3 - Please wait until after the first day of school (half day) and ask your teacher if she would like you to label supplies as some of them prefer to pool the supplies as well.
Grades 4 & 5 - Please be sure to label all supplies with the labels provided in your supply kit or with permanent pen.

Nature K and Nature 1 Clothing Supply List
