School Supplies

With the transition from elementary school to middle school, comes a need for students to identify an organization style that works for them.

Bring Your Own Device, digital platforms such as Google Classroom and Schoology, and calculators on phones, have transformed the way our students learn and produce evidence of learning. Students use various platforms for organization, including notebook planners, digital calendars, and apps such as Remind.

The staff at Dunstan wants to help your student develop an individual organization system. Your student might like to use 3 ring binders, a Trapper notebook, or perhaps an accordion file. Some students prefer to have their spiral notebooks loose, without any further organization. We suggest you talk with your student and purchase accordingly.

Each student will have a locker, and backpacks ARE allowed in classrooms.

Keeping that in mind, we do continue to use paper, pencils, and pens at Dunstan.

Here is a suggested list (items will need to be replenished throughout the year):

  • Spiral notebooks
  • Folders
  • Pencils
  • Pens
  • Highlighters
  • Dry erase markers
  • Scotch tape glue sticks, and scissors

Again, three ring binders, Trapper Keeper style binders, accordion files, etc. are at your discretion.

Please see the Bring Your Own Device page for technology specifications.


*Teachers might request specific items from time to time depending on the unit of study.
