Instructional Supplies

The Rainbow District School Board provides all textbooks and some of the students’ school supplies.  Loaned materials are expected to be returned in good condition.  Books are expensive.  Each student in the junior or intermediate grades will use approximately $150.00 of texts.  Lost or vandalized texts must be replaced.  Supply lists for each grade are sent home with the final report card.

All students are asked to keep a pair of indoor running shoes at school for use in gym classes as well as inside the school.  Maintaining the gym floor can be a time consuming process since black scuff marks need individual attention and cannot just be buffed off.  Please ensure gym shoes have non-scuff soles.

The Rainbow District School Board and Ministry of Education and Training provides some of the students’ school supplies and textbooks. These items are expected to be used carefully, without waste or abuse. Loaned materials are expected to be returned in good condition.

The following are lists of suggested back to school supplies which you may wish to provide for your child for the school year.
