School supply shopping list for 2014-15
Facebook parents for keeping an eye out - just one button difference
between posting and not and we're still learning our new website
software - please accept our apologies! Our teachers make good use of
the tools we can access through the student iPads, but there are a few
things that will help your child meet teacher expectations for the
coming year. This list is meant to focus your shopping trip during
tax-free weekend to be as efficient as possible!
For all students:
- Be sure to have at least one notebook (spiral or binder) for the random task/assignment requiring paper.
- Blue/black pens and #2 lead pencils should also be carried.
will be able to use a TI-84 graphing calculator through all math
classes (even into college) and college entrance exams. If new are too
high priced, try pawn shops for used ones.
- You may wish to look
at backpacks but keep in mind we have no lockers and not a lot of room
for large and wheeled models. Small drawstring packs seem to work well.
you are a new student your iPad will be the iPad Air model. We will
provide a cover but you may wish to look for one to personalize, if you
like. We do not provide keyboards but you may use them if you wish.
Specific classes: Check back as teachers add to the list

A word about shopping for school clothes
- we follow the Knox County dress code policy. We respect personal
expression through fashion, however, we are at school to learn, which is
a professional activity. We expect clothing to show that we're coming
to school to learn, not to distract others from the learning process by
our clothing (or lack thereof). Please keep the following in mind when
shopping for your school wardrobe:
For young ladies:
the popular crochet back tops will need to be worn with a shrug or light
jacket over them, we should not be able to see your back skin.
Sleeveless is ok as long as the straps are at least 3 fingers wide (side
by side). Cap sleeves are best for warm weather. Shorts/skirts MUST
be longer than the longest fingertip when arms are extended at your
side. On the front, your belly and cleavage should not be visible -
keep it all covered, please.
For young men: Shorts are
o.k., but like pants, should be worn near the waist - no "sagging."
Belts are expected to be used. No tank tops. For both genders -
articles of clothing or accessories that display or represent offensive
material, content, or substances which would be illegal for your age
group (alcohol, cigarettes, etc.) are not appropriate. No head
coverings other than those of religious significance are allowed inside
