Supply List

The following list of supplies are recommended for your middle school student in support of the learning in all content areas.  Although this is a comprehensive list that covers most of the classes offered at Avon Middle School, additional supplies may be requested by specific classes or based on the requirements of various class projects.  The list below is only a suggestion and is not required. 

Grades 7 and 8:

  • Backpack (standard size, with multiple pockets);
  • Pens (Blue, Black, Red)
  • #2 Pencils
  • Colored pencils
  • Highlighters (various colors)
  • Five (5), 1” Three Ring Binders (1 per subject area)
  • Five (5), Pocket folders (Separate colors, 1 per subject area)
  • Black and White Composition Book
  • Calculator*

 

*A minimum of a scientific calculator is suggested; however, a graphing calculator such as a TI-84 Plus Silver Edition or TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition will be introduced in 8th grade and required in high school.  We would like you to consider purchasing a graphing calculator for your student as it will be used in both 8th grade science and math classes. This is not an inexpensive calculator – the cost for the equipment is approximately $125. However, it is the same calculator required for math classes at Avon High School.  Care should be taken to secure this item at all times while at school.
