With just one week to go before the beginning of another school year, school supply shopping is a top priority for students.
Superintendent for Anglophone East Gregg Ingersoll says the district is once again offering standardized supply lists.
“You can find those lists on our Anglophone East website. They are all listed there with each grade level, and for each program. Most of the stores that sell school supplies also have lists. We’ve done everything we can to try and keep the school supply list as concise as it can be so that parents don’t have to spend anymore money than they have to on school supplies,” Ingersoll says.
High school students will receive lists from their teachers once they start school, “We let the individual teacher tell the students exactly what it is they need when they get into their courses. The list for high school is usually not as extensive as for the younger grades.”
Meanwhile, Ghislaine Arsenault, a spokesperson for Francophone South responded via email that the district does not have standardized lists of supplies – those are managed by schools and teachers and are published on their website.
The new school year begins on September 4th.
