School Supplies

Lower School

Lower School students order school supply packs through our online vendor, EPI. Utilizing this service insures each student has the correct supplies needed for each grade since many classes have very specific supply needs that are necessary to the programmed curriculum.

How to order school supplies for PreSchool, Bridge to Kindergarten, Kindergarten and 1st-5th grades:

  • Online School Supply Pack ordering is now closed. Any students enrolled in Lower School (PreSchool-5th grade) who did not order a supply pack online prior to the July 31st deadline, will have a supply pack ordered for them by the school. The student's FACTS tuition account will have the cost of the supply pack added to their September payment balance.

PLEASE NOTE: Students in 3rd-5th grade will also be responsible for purchasing a Vilros Raspberry Pi for their STEM/Robotics course. While all other items for the STEM/Robotics course are being provided by the school, this unique item is purchased by students so they can be taken home during holidays and used over the summer:
