The Importance of Back-to-School Preparation

Preparing your child for the upcoming school year is essential for their success. By providing them with the right supplies, you are setting them up for a positive and productive learning experience. With our free/reduced school supplies checklist, you can ensure that your child has everything they need, regardless of your financial situation.

Our Free/Reduced School Supplies Checklist

At First Baptist Church of Strongsville Garbc, we believe that every child deserves access to quality education, regardless of their economic background. Our free/reduced school supplies checklist is carefully curated to include all the essential items your child may need for the upcoming school year. By following this checklist, you can alleviate the stress of back-to-school shopping and ensure your child is fully prepared!

Grade-Specific Checklists

We understand that each grade level has unique requirements. Therefore, we have created grade-specific checklists that cater to the specific needs of your child. Whether your child is entering elementary school, middle school, or high school, we have you covered!

Backpack Essentials

A sturdy backpack is an essential item for any student. It not only carries their books and supplies but also keeps them organized. Make sure your child's backpack is durable and spacious enough to hold all their essentials. Don't forget to include a lunchbox and water bottle to keep them fueled and hydrated throughout the day.

Writing Materials

Writing materials such as pens, pencils, erasers, and highlighters are fundamental tools for academic success. Ensure that your child has a sufficient supply of these items to complete their assignments and take notes effectively. For older students, consider including a scientific calculator or other specialized tools specific to their coursework.

Notebooks and Binders

Organization is key to staying on top of coursework. Provide your child with an ample number of notebooks and binders to keep their class notes and assignments well-organized. Encourage them to color-code or label their subjects for easy reference.

Tech Requirements

In today's digital age, technology plays a vital role in education. Check if your child's school has any specific tech requirements, such as laptops, tablets, or software. Ensure that their devices are in good working condition and have all the necessary software and applications installed.

School Clothing

Help your child start the new school year with confidence by providing them with appropriate school clothing. Check the school's dress code and stock up on essential items like uniforms or comfortable everyday outfits. Don't forget to include shoes, socks, and accessories to complete their wardrobe.

Back-to-School Health Checkup

Your child's health is vital to their overall well-being and academic performance. Schedule a back-to-school health checkup with their pediatrician to ensure they are up-to-date on vaccinations and in good health. Obtain any necessary medical forms or prescriptions for school and include them in your checklist.
