• 5th Grade Supply List (2020-2021)

    *Arizona law requires that public schools provide supplies required for academic success. This list represents optional, supplementary items which you may supply, at your discretion.  If you have questions, feel free to contact the school. 

    If you need assistance with school supplies, please contact a 5th grade teacher - we are happy to help ensure that your child has everything he or she needs to be successful.

    Individual Student Supplies: 

    • Backpack (consider a rolling backpack since students do not have personal desks to store belongings; all personal supplies MUST fit in backpack, so a larger backpack is ideal)
