Core School Supply Lists

2021-2022 Core School Supplies 

The supply lists are divided by grade levels. Items which will not be used by a school / teacher may be omitted. Individual schools may specify specific colors of items but may not exceed the number requested on the RCS Core Supply List. Additional items may be requested on a “wish list” but may not be added to the core supply list. Supplies are not to be listed as name brand specific.

Supply lists for high school students will vary depending on a student's specific schedule; check with your school / teacher for more information.
