  • School Supplies

    Mendon Families!

    The school year is quickly approaching. Since we know that many are beginning school shopping for book bags, lunch boxes, and school clothes, we are posting the supply list for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year for each grade level. The posted list will also be mailed later on this month. The supplies listed are the items that are utilized throughout each school day by your child. For our students that will be completing work online, we are suggesting basic supplies to have on hand, but the majority of work will be completed via the computer. As in years past, your child’s classroom teacher may also send a “wish list” of items. These are items that help out in the classroom.

    Additionally, your child’s classroom assignment will be mailed sometime the week of August 17, 2020. There will also be an upcoming announcement within the weeks to come in regard to pick-up of devices and books for our online students.

    Please remember, all of our water fountains have been turned in to water stations and water bottles are permitted to be in school.

    If you have any questions, you may call the office at your earliest convenience. The first day of school is Monday, August 31, 2020.

    We miss all of you and are excited to see everyone soon!
