pexels-photo-261909.jpegCLASSROOM SUPPLIES:

Schools in BC received additional resources to assist families with the cost of supplies.  At DTSS this fall, each classroom will be outfitted with a supplies kit, which will include consumables and tools (paper, glue, scissors, erasers, rulers, coloured pencils, etc.).  In addition, our library will have a number of scientific calculators which may be signed out for extended use each semester.  Should you have any questions regarding classroom supplies, please contact the school administration.​


Supply List

  • Binders – many students use zip binders in which they may store material for more than one class.  No more than 2 courses should be in one binder.  Regular binders are fine.
  • Dividers – If students are using a binder for two courses, dividers should be used to separate the courses (usually a pack contains 6-10).
  • Pens  and Pencils.  Students don't need 20 pencils in September but may need 5 in the 4th term.
  • Calculator – scientific, not graphing.  Sharp brand preferred (comparable price and easier for students to use).
  • Paper – 3 hole punch, lined
  • Miscellaneous – eraser, ruler, highlighter(s), scissors, pencil crayons/felts, glue sticks, flash drive
  • Gym strip
    • Shorts/sweatpants - must fit so that underwear is not hanging out and the legs are long enough that the student does not have to tug them down;
    • T-shirt/sweatshirt - must cover the shoulders/ top of the arm and long enough to cover stomach when jumping - no tank tops please;
    • running shoes;
    • be prepared for the bad weather so may need jacket/hoody at times.
  • Enhanced French – a spiral-bound notebook
  • Drawing and Painting – sketchbook​

    Printing cache of $3 (.05/page or $.10 colour) may expire by the end of the first term.  Students can add paper by paying at the main office (min. $1 increments please).

    Basic supplies can be purchased through the library.
