School Year 2024-2025


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 2024-2025 is $35.00 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 – $24                                 

Some Divisions will be using JUMP Math Workbooks. This material supplements the classroom math program.  

The cost for two workbooks is $24. Students will write directly in the workbooks.

 Math and Language Arts IXL  – $15                                

This year some classes will be using Math and Language Arts Online IXL to supplement their learning. It is a comprehensive online tool that allows students and teachers to track their progress and achievement, and practice skills.

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. 

Financial Hardship

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.
