GENERAL $25.00 SUPPLY FEE
The Vancouver School Board offers
the service of purchasing basic school supplies in bulk at wholesale prices
and passing the cost savings on to families.
The School Supply Fee for 2018
– 2019 is $25.00 per student.
This fee covers basic consumable
school supplies used for students’ personal use such as paper, writing tools,
glue sticks, erasers, exercise books and art supplies. Supplies are provided for the full year.
Student Agenda/Planner – $5
Students at Thunderbird will be using an
Agenda/Planner in grades 3-7. School agendas/planners are a valuable tool for
teaching children how to organize and plan for school. While students are not
required to have an agenda/planner it is designed to assist students with the
skills of organization and time management and is a very useful communication
tool often used between teachers and families.
JUMP Math Workbooks – $15
Some Divisions will be using JUMP Math Workbooks. This
material supplements the classroom math program.
The workbook is available for
purchase at the cost of $15. Students are not obligated to purchase the
workbook, and may opt to use their copy as a reference textbook instead,
meaning the workbook will be returned at the end of the school year for
another student to use in the future.
Students opting to use the workbook as a textbook will be responsible
for ensuring that it remains unmarked and in excellent condition in order to
return the workbook at the end of the year.
Field Studies –determined throughout
the school year at the classroom level
Throughout the school year your child’s teacher may
plan supplementary learning opportunities at locations outside of the school
and request monies towards entrance fees, transportation or equipment
rental. Your child’s teacher will
communicate this information to you directly.
As a reminder, the Vancouver School Board will not
deny a child access to the school supplies required for his or her
educational program because of financial hardship. Nor will any child be
excluded from activities where a fee is charged. If at any time there is a financial
challenge, please contact the School Principal. All requests will be treated confidentially.
