2019-2020 School Supply Lists and Kits

There are three ways you can purchase next year's school supplies.


  1. Thanks to our fabulous PTO, supplies can be ordered online from schoolkidz at your convenience! The online prepackaged grade level supplies can be ordered until June 7, 2019.. If you purchase your student's school supplies online, the supplies will be delivered to the school before the first day of school. Grade appropriate kits are available now. Click here and use account #79519 to view the kits.
  2. LTLov provides a limited amount of free district-approved, prepackaged school supplies funded from charitable grants. If you would like to apply for a set of free, prepackaged supplies, fill out this form and forward it to LTLOV so that it is received by LTLOV by June 3.
  3. Below we have lists of the school supplies so that, if you prefer, you can purchase the supplies on your own from any source convenient to you. Feel free to drop off the school supplies that you've purchased at our Meet the Teacher event August 13.



*3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Students also need to have student planners for the 2019-20 school year. These are sold separately from the prepackaged kits. The student planners can be ordered through May 24. Please use this form to order your planner(s.) Planners cost $6 each, payable in cash or check to WCHE. Planners ordered by May 24 will be delivered to students' classrooms at our Meet the Teacher Event August 13. Planners can also be purchased at the school during the Meet the Teacher Event or from the front desk any time on or after the first day of school.

The Wall of Fame for Shoe Tying for Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Graders

If your Kinder, 1st Grader, and/or Second Grader can tie his/her shoes, please notify Coaches Mirizzi & Mayes because they want to honor this accomplishment in the school gym on our WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!


Once notified of the student's successful shoe-tying accomplishment, we will provide your student with a paper shoe to color, take the student's photo, and then post the photo and customized paper shoe on our WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!


It's going to be really exciting to see our young Tigers on the WALL OF FAME!

Our clinic needs new or gently used leggings, shorts, and pants

Accidents happen! And, sometimes students need warm, dry clothing to finish out their school day.


Nurse Hensel, as the keeper of the wardrobe, has reported a need for small, medium and large girls' leggings. She also needs, for boys and/or girls, small, medium, and large athletic shorts and pants.


We would appreciate your keeping Nurse Hensel's needs in mind if you have gently used clothing that your children no longer need. Many thanks!
