School Supplies - Ideas

Buchser General School Supplies

This is just general list of supplies suggested to get your child ready for school.  Individual teachers will distribute separate lists of specific supplies needed for their subject area.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SPECIAL REQUESTS:  We understand that our parents like to donate supplies to the classrooms and we do appreciate them.  However, one item that we can no longer have in the classrooms is that of disinfecting wipes as per our District Risk Department.  Parents who wish to donate cleaning wipes may donate 'baby wipes'.  Thank you for your continued support of Buchser Middle School.
