St. Brendan School is offering a new way to purchase your child's school supplies for next year: the school has uploaded the supply list for each grade (1st through 8th) to SchoolToolBox.com, which is an on-line source of high quality, name-brand school supplies.
You may purchase the supply list in its entirety from School Tool Box, or customize the list if you have some supplies already on hand, or want to buy extras to have at home. The supply boxes will be shipped directly to your home (one box for each child), giving you time to label each item with your child's name. (As a nice bonus, School Tool Box makes a donation to the non-profit "Feed My Starving Children" for each box of supplies purchased.)
If you prefer to make your own selections, we now have each grade's supply list available on the school website. You can print this and take it to your favorite retailer, or order the supplies on-line. (If you use Amazon, please remember to start your search at Smile.Amazon.com and designate St. Brendan School San Francisco as the recipient of the Amazon donation).
Please remember to label everything with your child's first and last name before the first day of school in August.
We hope you will be pleased with this new system. We have tried to make it as simple as possible, while still giving you the flexibility to purchase only those supplies you need.
Please find the attachments for the supply list for your child's grade.
P.S. This new system only applies to grades 1 through 8. The kindergarten teachers prefer that all of their students have exactly the same supplies and brands, so the kindergarten students do not need to purchase their own, they will receive them the first day of class.
