School Supplies for the 2022-2023 School Year

What supplies will your child need for school in September? The school will provide all children with essential learning materials and equipment that they will need throughout the year. In addition to what the school provides, students will also need and/or might like to bring in other items. Below is a list to get you started. Please note:

  • Your child's teacher may have more specific item recommendations that they will communicate to you at the beginning of the school year.

  • Students are encouraged to reuse items that are still in good condition from previous years where possible.

Kindergarten

Below are the items that our Kindergarten Team recommends for each JK and SK student:

    • Backpack: Large enough to fit a lunch bag and water bottle. In August, practice packing, opening and closing the backpack so that your child is able to do it independently at school.

    • Lunch Kit: Again, have your child practice opening their lunch kit and containers independently.

    • Water bottle: Please send a reusable water bottle with your child.

    • Extra clothes: all season, labelled ziplock bag, to be kept at school

    • Blanket for quiet time: The blanket should be bath towel-sized or smaller. Due to space constraints, please do not send in yoga mats, pillows, sleeping bags, bed rolls, etc.

    • Small packets of tissues (to keep at desk for personal use)

    • Small bottle of hand sanitizer for personal use (can be refilled at school at any time)

    • Indoor shoes: Children should have a pair of shoes to wear indoors, and a pair of shoes or other footwear to wear outdoors. Indoor shoes will be stored at school. If you are not sending the indoor shoes in right away, please aim to send them by early October.
