Elsmere 2018-19 supply lists

Filed in Elsmere by on July 16, 2018

Below you will find the Elsmere Elementary School supply lists, by grade, for the 2018-19 school year. Although they do not appear on any supply list, boxes of tissues are always appreciated!

Important note: All of our students, K-5, now use headphones when they access technology for assessment or instruction. If you would prefer that your child has their own set, please send them in a ziplock bag with your child’s name. Teachers in grades 3-5 prefer that children have a headset with a microphone.
