    Please note: The supplies listed on the letter/contract sent home are suggested materials and are not required of any student or family to fully participate in the school’s academic program. All required materials and supplies will be provided by schools to students at no cost if these items are not readily available from the students. I recognize that many families wish to provide supplies for their own students and are welcomed to do so at any time. This is greatly appreciated.
