It's School Supplies Time!

What an exciting year we have had! Can you believe it is already time to start planning for the 2017-18 school year?

One of the biggest hassles of starting a new school year can be buying school supplies. This saga usually includes multiple shopping trips to different stores, navigating crowds, blistering summer temperatures, and struggles to find exactly what you need. In order to help parents avoid all of these unpleasant summertime traditions, ADS has once again partnered with a school supplies company to make this process as easy and convenient as possible. Introducing: 
1st Day School Supplies!

For those of you who have ordered from our suppliers before, you might notice that we are using a new company this year. We heard from our community that the quality of packaging and customer service from our previous supplier needed to be improved. We listened! Our new partners guarantee quality products, a great customer service experience, and competitive pricing. The kits are even delivered directly to the school for distribution into your children's classrooms! You can find our school's page and place your order here!
Some grades are divided by gender. This is because we do not need one of all items. The separate lists are slightly different to reflect quantity wanted by the grade-level teachers.

1st Day School Supplies offers great-quality products with specific name brands, but you are not required to purchase the same brand if you choose to do your shopping independently.

Next year, 5th graders are required to choose organizational supplies that work best for them in addition to the supplies listed in the kit. The additional items that 5th graders need are:
  • An organizational method: 3-ring binder, portfolio case, etc.
  • Pencil pouch with writing utensils of your choice
  • For Math: Choice of 1 spiral notebook, 1 composition book, or a divided section in their binder with paper
  • For ELA: Choice of 2 spiral notebooks or 2 composition books
  • For Social Studies: Choice of 1 spiral notebook, 1 composition book, or a divided section in their binder with paper
The ordering deadline is June 30th, so order soon! If you have any questions, please email Taylor at
***Please Note: School Supplies Orders through this online supplier ended June 30th, 2017. You can find your child(ren)'s lists in PDF on the right side of this page. Please bring supplies to the classroom teacher during Meet the Teacher Night or the first day of school.
