2022-2023 Supply List

School Supplies, Backpacks, Water Bottles

At AMS, we have a variety of school supplies on hand and can provide them for any student who needs them throughout the year. We do not expect every student to have every single one of the supplies necessary, as different projects call for different supplies as the year goes along.

However, I know that most students like to have their own "stuff" and that the school supply sales are starting up, so the following is a list of supplies that will be helpful for all three grade levels.

  • Pencils / pens
  • Colored pencils
  • Single subject notebooks
  • Binder at least 1.5 inches thick with filler paper
  • Folders
  • Highlighters
  • Earbuds
  • Charger for iPad (one is provided by the school)

Students will be allowed to carry backpacks during the day once again this year.

Students may also carry a water bottle (the school has several filling stations) during the day. It is preferred that the water bottles NOT be of the squeezable type (like the Gatorade bottles) because 11-14 year old kids seem to have overwhelming difficulty resisting the urge to squirt water at one another (Had squirt bottles been a thing when I was a kid, I would have had the same problem!). This is not a mandate, and we will deal with this on a case-by-case basis, but if we can take this potential problem away ahead of time, let's try to do so.
