SCHOOL SUPPLIES LISTS

supply

School Supplies Lists Below are a brief glimpse of the overwhelming number of items requested per class in each school.  We compile all the school supplies requests from every school and created a combined list for each grade level giving the average number of items requested.  Please see our general shopping list which combines all lists from k-12.  We need all the help we can get to reach these goals.  If we pull together as a community we can accomplish all this and more!

Items italicized in the “Goals List” are harder to collect through our Pack the Bus effort at Yadkin Bank.

Very Gently Used CLEAN Items We are Happy to Accept:

Lunch Boxes
Hats/gloves
Sports Gear (cleats, soft ball pants etc.)
New Socks
New Underwear
Shoes
Graphing calculators (gently used okay)
Scientific Calculators (gently used okay)
Towels for Preschoolers

If you plan to spend money on any items to help “Pack the Bus” please purchase school supplies FIRST. These are items we only want if you have them on hand.

Items we are NOT going to Distribute

  • Pencil Boxes or Pencil Packs

WHY? because teachers are specific about which type of pencil holder a student uses and students will not have their teacher assignments at the festival.  In addition, many of the pencil pouches fall apart easily and we do not want to send children with something that will need to be replaced immediately.

  • Cleaning Supplies

WHY?  Because we would rather focus on school supplies and use left over money to purchase additional items such as cleaning supplies for teachers after the festival.

Specialty Items (more expensive but still needed).

If you choose to offer these items please let us know so we can confirm it is still a need.  Also, we will need to store these items in a secure location and distribute them the most effective way possible whether at the festival or through the schools.

  • Weekly/daily planners
  • Graphing calculators (gently used okay)
  • Scientific Calculators (gently used okay)
  • Towels for Preschoolers
  • Ear Buds (we need 1000)
