School Supplies for 2017-2018

school_supplies_2jpg.jpg

In an effort to keep "back to school" shopping economical for families, we've simplified the supply list for our students. We're providing this list early so families can take advantage of back to school sales over the summer. Here are the items we recommend all students have regardless of assigned classes: 

  • Backpack
  • Pens
  • Pencils
  • Highlighters
  • Spiral Notebooks
  • Pocket Folders
  • Note Cards (if you like studying using a note card system) 
  • Preferred organizational system (binders, trapper keeper, etc.)
  • Math Graphing Paper (if taking Algebra)
  • Math Tools (ruler, compass, protractor -- if taking Geometry)
  • Calculator for Math 
    - TI-84 model is the most used/needed (escpecially for advanced classes)
    - TI-84 calculators are expensive but necessary; if finances are an issue, you can check with the teacher about a more affordable option or try to check out one from the Medica Center
    - Some are available in the media center for checkout but many students prefer to purchase their own
    - This model also works well for science needs

Students may need to check with their teachers during the first week of school about other needed supplies specific to a particular class (i.e. art classes)

Also, please note that Washburn gladly accepts extra donated supplies to help students for whom finances may be a struggle (such as our Homeless/Highly Mobile students).  We will be collecting donations at Welcome Back Night at the Washburn Cares table.
