School Year 2021-2022
GENERAL $35.00 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 2020-2021 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 – $18
Some Divisions will be using JUMP Math Workbooks. This material supplements the classroom math program.
The cost for two workbooks is $18. Students will write directly in the workbooks.
Field Studies –determined throughout the school year at the classroom level
Due to Covid-19 all field trips are cancelled until further notice
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.
