School Supplies

Families pay a supply fee when they submit their application, which covers many classroom supplies that we purchase in bulk (markers, glue, etc.). Each child should also have:

  • 1 backpack (optional)
  • 1 lunch bag/box
  • 1 white binder (1 inch thick or less) with clear pockets on the front and back
  • 1 large package of diapers (if child uses diapers or pull-ups – you may be asked to bring more during the year)
  • At least 1 extra set of clothes labeled with the child’s name (also label any coats, sweaters, etc.)

Each day, the child should bring a nutritious snack and lunch (if applicable) that contains fruit, vegetables, and protein. Click here for more information about food and nutrition.

Children staying the full day should also bring:

  • 1 small pillow, blanket and/or cozy item placed inside a reusable shopping bag.
  • 1 toothbrush

As a reminder:
A child’s clothing may get messy while they are exploring some ooey gooey activities!
It may be a good idea to keep rain boots at school. We go outside every day, even in the rain! However, this is not required.




Emergency Preparedness Kits

In the event of a severe earthquake, wind or sno storm, there is the possibility that your child(ren) will need to remain at school for an extended period of time. Most schools develop Emergency/Disaster plans, which include individual survival kits. The following recommended foods should be available in most supermarkets. The kits will be stored in the classroom. Please bring the kit within the first week of school.

Prepackaged kits will NOT be available for sale. The school does have extra food and water on site for emergencies, but an added kit would be beneficial to your child.

Please return the following items in a single ONE GALLON SIZE Ziploc Storage Bag CLEARLY MARKED WITH THE STUDENT’S NAME IN PERMANENT INK:

  • 2 6 oz cans fruit juice (apple, grape, tomato . . .)
  • 2 4 oz cans fruit (applesauce, peaches, pears, fruit cocktail)
  • 2 3 oz cans meat (tuna, Vienna sausage, chicken), or beef jerky
  • 2 snack packs (cheese or peanut butter crackers)
  • 2 granola/energy bars
  • 2 dried fruit snacks
  • 1 set hat and mittens/gloves
  • 1 pocket-size tissue pack
  • 1 small package of moist towelettes (anti-bacterial)
  • 1 emergency insulation blanket
  • 1 small flashlight with batteries

Please note:

  • Do not include any items that require cooking or refrigeration.
  • All cans must have a pull top. No glass or combustible items. No boxed drinks.
  • Everything must fit into ONE, gallon size storage bag
  • If you would like to prepare an extra bag for a student who is unable to prepare one, please feel free to do so and mark the bag EXTRA.

Also, please include a reassuring personal note and family photo to comfort your child.

Hopefully we will never have to use these items; nevertheless, we should be prepared.
