Classroom Supplies: Gearing Up and Being Prepared Each Day
At the high school level, teachers do not issue supply lists by school grades. Rather, individual teachers list their course-specific supply expectations in their syllabi, which they distribute at the beginning of each school year or semester (depending on whether the course is full-year or only one semester in length).
In general, however, students should have the following supplies every day:
- Pen or Pencil
- Paper (notebook and/or graph paper for math classes)
- Notebook or folder for each class
Other equipment that often comes in handy may include the following:
- Markers or colored pencils
- Post It notes
- Index cards
- Paper clips
- Correction tape or fluid
- Ruler or straight edge
- Graphing calculator (for math and science classes)
Note: Families do not have to purchase calculators for their children; students may check these out from the library when they check out textbooks during grade level “Comeback” days. Should you wish to purchase your own calculator, however, you should first check standardized test guidelines for acceptable models for testing.
Students needing assistance in getting school supplies should contact the Counseling Center at (615) 472-2358.
Note: An excellent time to shop for school supplies and clothing is the annual sales tax holiday right before students return to school. We will post information about the state sales tax holiday on the Parent Resources page every summer. In addition to the tales tax benefits, many stores offer additional sales and special discounts at that time.
