Additional school supplies 

Some school supplies may need to be replenished during the school year. In fact, each school may require additional supplies depending on what they are planning after Summer. 

Schools that offer Self-contained classes often make this clear in their newsletter and the School Supply List they send to parents and citizens. 

In addition, look out for the items for boys and girls, and the additional supplies that you may have to buy.
