The school provides textbooks on a loan basis for all students and issues these to each student at the beginning of the year. Similarly, the school supplies each Kindergarten student with an ipad and each 1st – 8th grade student with a chromebook. Doing so enables us to keep up with the best and most innovative teaching materials and methods for each subject. Students are expected to take good care of them and to return them with minimal wear and tear. Textbooks or devices which are lost or damaged as a result of student carelessness must be replaced at the parents’ expense. Bills will be sent home during the final days of school and are to be paid in full before the end of school.
The school supplies various items for certain projects in all grades, including journals in Kindergarten and First Grade. The school also supplies an agenda for students in Grades 2-8. However, most general student supplies are to be provided by the student as requested by the teachers before the beginning of the year. Parents should check their child’s agenda each night for assignments, notes, needed parent signatures, etc. Students in grades K – 8 are encouraged to purchase school supplies from FirstDaySchoolSupplies.com to ensure uniformity and equity.
During COVID, parents are asked to purchase instruments, rather than borrow them to ensure that students are not spreading germs.
