Families will not have to buy school supplies this year as the district, PTA and a group of parents purchased them for our students.
This will help ease the financial burden for families during the economic hardship created by the COVID-19 shutdown and make it safer for our students who will have their own supplies, eliminating any need to share items.
Every student will have their own tool case or pencil bag filled with pencils, erasers, pens, markers, colored pencils, highlighters, scissors, paints, brushes and other items. Students will also have all supplies listed by their grade level teachers such as paper, notebooks and calculators.
Each student will also receive a new pair of headphones for their exclusive use throughout the year with their Chromebooks. The district purchased an additional 115 Chromebooks for student use this year. Laptop computers equipped with web cameras and WiFi capability were also purchased for each teacher.
“Thank you to the parents who raised the concern about families having to buy so many school supplies this year and the PTA for their support. Together great things happen for kids!” said Principal/Interim Superintendent Dr. Mary Yodis.
