7th Grade Supply/Materials List: 

Here is a list of suggested supplies for 7th grade. This includes items for both core and enrichment classes. For the first week of school, you will just need something to write with, as well as your planner that you will get at orientation.

After camp we will start using the rest of the school supplies. Teachers will fill you in on which materials are for which subjects, as well as help you set up binders/notebooks/folders after camp!

  • (4) 1 subject notebooks
  • pencils
