School Supply Lists
The CBE believes every student should have the basic tools they need to learn from the first day of school. As CBE adjusts it processes to align with the new Assurance and Funding Framework, grant funding from the province needs to be directed to programming. For the 2020-21 school year, to support student learning, CBE is introducing a school supplies fee for students in kindergarten to Grade 9. The CBE will use its purchasing power to buy items like pens, pencils, and erasers at a reasonable cost and provide supplies to students instead of families purchasing them individually.
The following is a list of items not included in the CBE School Supply Fee.
Grade 5-6 Supply List
- water bottle
- athletic shoes
- agenda (optional)
- geometry set
- basic calculator
Grade 7-9 Supply List
Students in grades 7-9 are required to change into a t-shirt and shorts/sweatpants for their Physical Education classes. Students with long hair should also bring elastics to school to tie their hair back during certain PE modules. Students may bring their own PE clothing from home, or they can purchase RTA attire, with the RTA school logo: The Raven. The RTA Spirit Wear Store will open in late August/early September and in December. Students must have good athletic shoes for their safety and protection. They are not to use hiking shoes, slip-ons or flip-flops for PE class.
We are a school that follows the traditional school calendar. View our School Calendar. For system calendars, visit: www.cbe.ab.ca/registration/calendars
Students are encouraged to bring a nutritious lunch to school, including a variety of snacks, should hunger strike. While there is a vending machine, it is only available during non-instructional times. Moreover, as we are a peanut sensitive school, we encourage students be mindful of foods containing nuts.
