School Supplies

We are once again encouraging our families to order school supplies online but this year (2020) it is through a company called School Start. The benefit of School Start is that if you want to reuse some of you current supplies, you can remove them from the order to make your order cheaper.

The video below shows you how to order online.

Note: Kindergarten school supplies can be purchased in the fall from the teachers. For BGMS grade 6 school supply lists, please see the bottom of this page.

If you would prefer to go and buy the supplies on your own, the lists are all linked at the bottom. 

*Place your online order from now until June 2020 and you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win $1000 in groceries. The winning kit order number will be posted on our school-start FB page early July.

The staff at Shortreed Elementary School are excited to offer the opportunity to purchase quality standardized school supplies through School Start for the 2020/2021 school year. This process should save you both time and money.
