Lower School

Lower School supplies are purchased as packs from an online vendor. 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.

Online ordering of supply packs is now closed. Any students in Preschool-5th grade who did not order their supply packs prior to the online deadline should contact Josh Harbour for more information on school supplies.

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:
