Are there school supply lists?

All supply lists are optional and meant to serve only as a guide for families. 

Cunningham: https://tinyurl.com/mrych2ee

Glover: https://bit.ly/3p41L0X

Tucker: https://bit.ly/3vQWyxj

Pierce: https://bit.ly/3PaPR05

MHS: During the opening days of school, MHS teachers will discuss with students what supplies they will need for the school year. All 9th and 10th graders will be provided with chromebooks during Advisory in the opening days of school and 11th and 12th graders will be asked to bring their own devices for the school year. A device will be provided for any 11th or 12th grader who does not have their own device.

Collicot: School staff will introduce themselves and share any special supply requests with families after August 23rd. Please note that we strive to offer most supplies to all students. If there is a special request from your teacher that causes hardship, please reach out to Principal Concannon. It is always helpful to store basic supplies like pencils, pens, coloring tools, scissors, and a glue stick at home. Students should always have a book to read for enjoyment at home.

Will my student be provided a chromebook this year?

Elementary

All elementary students will be assigned a Chromebook for the 2022-23 school year.  Elementary Chromebooks are stored in the classroom unless a teacher requires their students to complete an assignment at home, or we have to switch to hybrid/ remote learning.  All families are required to fill out the 2022-23 Elementary Chromebook Loan Agreement.  Below are additional resources for your review:

Pierce

Pierce Middle School is a 1:1 Chromebook school.  All sixth grade students will be assigned a Chromebook on the first day of school.  Rising seventh & eighth grade students have been issued their Chromebooks.  Incoming sixth grade students and new Pierce students will receive their Chromebooks during the new student orientation on Tuesday, August 30th.  Students who do not attend the orientation will receive their Chromebook the first day of school in their homeroom.  Students are expected to bring their fully charged Chromebook to school every day and bring their Chromebooks to all classes.  All students and families are expected to fill out the 2022-23 Pierce Chromebook Loan Agreement.  Below are additional resources for your review:

 

MHS

Milton High School will continue with our one-to-one Chromebook initiative (1:1) for all ninth and tenth grade students next year (2022-23).  In adopting this model, all ninth and tenth grade students will receive a school-issued Chromebook that they will take to and from school on a daily basis. Students are expected to bring their fully charged Chromebook to school every day and bring their Chromebooks to all classes. Ninth and tenth grade students will not be allowed to bring their own device to school.  Incoming ninth grade students and new tenth grade students will receive their Chromebook the first day of school in advisory.  All ninth and tenth grade students are required to fill out the 2022-23 MHS Chromebook Loan Agreement.

Eleventh and twelfth grade students can borrow a Chromebook for the 2022-23 school year if they are unable to bring their own device (other than a smartphone).  Upper class students who need to borrow a Chromebook for the school year will go to the MHS library on the first day of school to sign out a Chromebook.  All eleventh and twelfth grade students loaning an MHS Chromebook are required to fill out the 2022-23 MHS Chromebook Loan Agreement.  Below are additional resources for your review:
