School Supplies, Agenda, Etc

In the spring classroom teachers ordered class sets of school supplies for their students. We are able to get very good bulk purchase prices in order to keep costs down. Parents/guardians then pay the school for these supplies.

All students need a separate pair of clean indoor running shoes. (These are not the shoes they wear to school.)

Costs for supplies, agendas, cultural events, busing for field trips are as follows:

Kindergarten – $45
Grades 1 – 5 – $57
Grade 6 – $87  (includes iPad insurance)

Classroom teachers will begin collecting money/cheques on September 17th. Please avoid bringing payment directly to the office. Cheques are made payable to Alwin Holland School.
