School Supply Lists
School supplies are provided by the Calgary Board of Education and ordered by the teachers. Supplies are distributed to students throughout
the school year.
Students need to bring indoor running shoes, a healthy snack and lunch each day, and a backpack for carrying items to and from school.
Students in Grades 1-6 may participate in the noon supervision program. Bussed students
(except Kindergarten) will typically need to register for noon supervision as well. For more information visit our Noon Supervision page. If your family is requiring support in providing lunch to your child please contact the school as we will again be participating in the Brown Bag Lunch program.
Families will be e-mailed by Monday, August 30, 2021, and informed of their child's classroom teacher. Class lists are thoughtfully created and have the involvement of all University School staff as we try to develop optimal learning environments for all students. To create balanced multi-aged classrooms, staff consider many factors including student learning needs and relationships with peers and staff.
