Compass 2018-2019 Supply List

Welcome to Compass Year 5! In lieu of a lengthy school supply list, we ask that you provide just a few materials and contribute to our Healthy School Fund, which covers the cost of our snack program, laundry service for reusable towels/rags and rest sheets/blankets (kindergarten only), and biannual lice checks. More information about how to contribute to the Healthy School Fund will be shared in upcoming Family Updates. All of the other supplies and materials your child will use this school year will be provided by the school.

We spend a lot of time outdoors and the supplies listed below will help our children stay safe and comfortable when they are outdoors in all kinds of weather. We ask that you leave a water bottle, sun hat, boots, and extra clothing at school. The links below are simply suggestions. It is not required that you purchase these exact materials. We encourage you to use water bottles, hats, boots, backpacks, and clothing that you already have at home or that you find gently used supplies rather than purchasing new materials. If you need help sourcing these materials for your child, please let us know and we will gladly assist you.

Required Supplies For All Children in All Grades:

Please use a permanent marker to label each item with your child’s name. Thanks!

  • Backpack (Please make sure your child’s backpack is large enough to hold a small bag of books and a 9 inch by 12 inch folder.)
  • Change of clothes (Please include a shirt, pants, underwear, and socks. Extra clothes are helpful for bathroom accidents, illness, rainy/messy field trips, impromptu trips to the sprinklers, messy projects, etc. Please label all pieces of clothing with your child’s name and place inside a large Ziploc bag labeled with your child’s name. If your child tends to have frequent bathroom accidents, please consider sending at least two sets of extra clothes.)

Recommended Supplies for all Children in All Grades:

  • Sun Hat
  • Rain/Snow Boots (Boots do not need to stay at school unless you have an extra pair, but please send your child to school in boots on wet and/or snowy days. Please also send a pair of sneakers to school on wet days so your child can change when he/she comes inside.)
