Any personal items such as radios, clocks, stereos, wallets, etc. may be brought to school, but must be marked or engraved with the student's name. Also, please clearly mark suitcases or trunks on the end with your child's full name. We do not recommend bicycles due to storage and security issues. (The Recreation Dept provides bicycles.) Other personal items, which may reduce periods of homesickness, are strongly recommended.

The list is only a recommendation of clothing and items the student should bring to school. If a student is required to bring supplies for school, the family will receive a separate list in the mail prior to the start of school.
