    General School Supplies

    This year we have used school funding to purchase supplies for the classrooms. Your child's teacher may have a wish list they will share with you after school starts.

    All Students

    All students will need a sturdy backpack large enough to fit a standard folder (no rolling backpacks, please).

    Preschool & Pre-K

    Additionally, primary students will need the following items per licensing requirements:

    • 2-inch-thick rest mat (2" x 19" x 44")
    • An extra set of school uniforms to keep in the classroom
    • A mat cover (crib sheets work well for this) and a blanket (should fit folded in a 2-gallon ziplock bag)

    TN Sales Tax Holiday

    Eligible items for the state's tax free holiday include clothing, school supplies and computers. Get the details on goods and exemptions on the Tennessee Department of Revenue website.
