Instructional Supplies

The Rainbow District School Board provides all textbooks and some of the students’ school supplies.  Loaned materials are expected to be returned in good condition.  Books are expensive.  Each student in the junior or intermediate grades will use approximately $150.00 of texts.  Lost or vandalized texts must be replaced.  Supply lists for each grade are sent home with the final report card.  Additional copies are available in the school office.

All students are asked to keep a pair of indoor running shoes at school for use in gym classes as well as inside the school.  Maintaining the gym floor can be a time consuming process since black scuff marks need individual attention and cannot just be buffed off. Please ensure gym shoes have non-scuff soles.

Each student in Grades 1 to 8 will be assigned to a locker.  It is advisable that locks be used for grades 4 to 8.  Students are not to switch lockers with, nor give out their combinations to other students.  Students are responsible for acquiring a lock as soon as possible.

The serial number and combination of the lock must be given to your child’s teacher to be recorded for emergeny purposes.

Each student is expected to:

  • maintain his/her locker in an orderly manner
  • report vandalism, theft, etc.
  • Random locker inspections may be carried out to ensure lockers are properly used.
