Supply Lists 2021-2022

Here are the supply lists by grade level for the 2021-2022 school year.  We recommend that you bring the supply list to Open House with you on August 11th, since we have a few new teachers in the building and to determine which teacher you may have for a subject as some of the supplies are specific to a teacher.  

*Please note that as of 7/29/21 at 12:00 pm, the 6th grade supply list was updated to not include sanitation items.*
