Student Supply List
Welcome back! Here is some more information about school supplies for the 2020-2021 year. We would like each family to donate some general school supplies at the beginning of the year (during August and September). We appreciate your generosity very much in keeping our school clean and supplied.
General School Supplies
5th grade: hand sanitizer or hand sanitizer refills
6th grade: hand soap or hand soap refills
7th grade: paper towels
8th grade: boxes of Kleenex
9th grade: boxes of regular letter-size copy paper (8.5 x 11”)
10th grade: toilet paper (24 pack)
11th grade: large black plastic trash bags (40 gallon)
According to our COVID-19 policy, your child will need their own personal items. Sharing or borrowing will not be allowed. The teachers and front desk will not be loaning any items, so everybody has to come prepared every day.
We suggest a small plastic container with the student’s name on it which will keep all supplies organized and in one place (available at Walmart, Dollar General, etc.). No one else will touch it if it is clearly labelled. In the box, students will keep all the items they might need during the school day. These include:
pencils, red pencil
water-based colored markers
calculator (if needed)
Prang Watercolor Pans (or a decent watercolor set with good basic brush—see website for ordering details)
Sakura Cra-Pas Junior Set of 12 pastels (or a good set of 12 oil pastels—see website for ordering details)
small bottle of hand sanitizer (optional)
For other supplies specific to particular classes, please see the remainder of this school supply list.
These extra items should go in the student’s personal box as well.
You don’t have to go with the plastic box but your student needs a specific container to keep all of his/her supplies organized and clean. Back packs will probably not work.
Staples is advertising a big sale now, with many items for $1.
Your student will also need a school uniform shirt (not on the first day! details on the website) and an agenda suitable for 5 classes (composition notebook works fine).
Students will need masks, every day, at all times when they are inside the building.
As always, thank you for your patience and support. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Kingfisher Uniform: blue oxford shirt embroidered with the school’s logo (Harbor Specialties on Front Street will embroider for $10); khaki pants or skirt.
Kingfisher t-shirt (available for order in the fall)
Agenda for keeping track of homework and assignments in all classes (a composition book will be fine for this; it just needs to have enough space to write detailed homework assignments for 5 subjects every day.)
Pencils, erasers, ruler, scissors, tape, glue, colored pencils, sharpies, and water based markers.
