Items not listed (ie. backpacks, water bottle, pencil cases, change of gym clothes etc.) and any additional items, over and above what is listed, that may be required by the student throughout the school year will be the responsibility of the parents/guardians.

Please ensure your child has a pair of indoor shoes for safety reasons and for the random fire drills that take place throughout the school year.
