Grade K to 5 Supply Lists for the 2021-2022 school year:

We have a contract with a company called "SchoolStarts" which offers school supply kits. You can find the lists below. Each document is two pages with important information for ordering on the second page. 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. You may also purchase these supplies at any store. Please pay attention to Brand names as these are the items that are proven to work best.
