Supply Lists

Supply Lists

school suppliesMPS schools that serve students in Kindergarten through grade 8 are using the same supplies list for 2016-17. We hope the simple list will help keep costs down for our families.

High schools will continue to feature their own supply lists, because the needs of older students vary. Please contact your child's high school for the supply list.

As your child runs out of supplies, you will need to purchase additional supplies during the year. It is always a good idea to have some supplies at home for doing homework. Please put your child's name on his/her supplies.

Please wait while we gather your results.
