School Supplies

Information About School Supplies at DCS

Please note: DCS will supply all materials needed for students to do their schoolwork

Gathering school supplies is a fun back-to-school tradition for many families. 

Families often inquire about supplies that their students might find useful at home and/or supplies that they might donate to the classroom. For this reason, we have partnered with TeacherLists to provide parents and guardians with an accurate, convenient list for each building so that families can easily take advantage of summer sales if they choose to purchase classroom supplies. 

Families and students who need assistance with personal supplies such as backpacks, lunchboxes, etc., can contact their building social worker or principal for confidential assistance. School offices are closed for the summer until mid-August, so during the summer, please contact the district offices at or call 734-424-4102 with any questions.

Please Note:

  • Each building list includes the most common supplies used in our classrooms. 
  • Where items are labeled as "individual item," it means the item is not shared with other students. Other items are pooled and shared among the students. 
  • Individual teachers may create a wish list of additional specialized items that are helpful in their classrooms. They will share these wish lists with families once students are assigned to teachers in the fall. 
  • Click the links below to access each building list, or find them on the DCS App for easy access on a mobile device. 
  • Grades 7-12 should wait to hear from their teachers before choosing notebooks and binders.
