Where can I find school supplies lists?Community ISD is proud to continue providing an online school supply list for the 2024-25 school year. Thanks to our partners at Teacher Lists, now parents are able to find and shop their child's supply list easily with the convenience of in-store pickup or one-click shopping from our national retail partners including Target, Walmart and Office Depot.


All 6th-12th grade students are encouraged to bring the following to the first day of school:

1. Backpack
2. Notebook
3. Two #2 Pencils
4. Two blue or black pens
5. Two red pens

More specific lists will be shared by your students' teachers within the first two weeks of school. These supply lists vary so much between subjects and teachers that one list for all students wouldn't work very well, as students would be buying supplies they didn't need. The supplies listed above will serve your student(s) well for the first two weeks of school.
