Basic Supply List for Kindergarten:

20 good quality, pre-sharpened pencils (Dixon or Venus)

4 White vinyl erasers

1 package of 24 wax crayons

1 set of 12 felt pens (water soluble)

1 set of 12 pencil crayons

1 drawstring bag to hold a full “change of clothes” appropriate to the season

1 pair non-marking runners to be used for gym/inside shoes. These need not be new.

Important Notes

All primary teachers purchase class supplies of extra items (notebooks, art supplies, planners, etc.). You will be asked for $20.00 to cover the cost of these.

If the above fees shall cause financial hardship, we will accept payment by installments (one or more post-dated cheque[s]). For cases of serious need, we can make other arrangements. All schools in School District #64 (Gulf Islands) have a School Fees Waiver Policy. In the event of an inability to pay, please contact Kelda Logan at 250-537-9332.  All requests will remain


Please save your Country Grocer receipts for your class. If we start now, the funds will grow over the summer! We will use the money returned to us by Country Grocer for school expenses such as classroom supplies, field trips, school-wide projects and special events. Thank you!
