Student Supplies

SUPPLIES FOR K4–8th GRADE (2018–2019)

School supplies necessary for students in K4–8th grade are purchased and placed in classrooms ready for the first day of school. The cost of supplies is added to an activity fee divided between two payments billed to accounts in September and January. Geneva benefits both from our tax-exempt status and bulk pricing. The cost is no more than $50 per student.

ITEMS NOT INCLUDED IN ACTIVITY FEE BILLING: At each grade level, there are a few items that are not included in the activity fee billing. These are items that parents supply and others that may or may not need to be replenished this year. CLICK HERE FOR THE LIST. 

The following are items that may need to be replenished this year, and are available from the SCHOOL STORE:

  • Portfolio Bag (K & 1st grade) – $13: Kindergarten and 1st grade students who are new to The Geneva School should purchase a portfolio bag. Returning kindergarten and 1st grade students may use a portfolio bag purchased in a previous year or purchase a new one.
  • Grammar School Sketchbook (2nd – 6th grade) – $7: 2nd-6th grade students who are new to The Geneva School should purchase a sketchbook. Returning students may use a sketchbook purchased in a previous year or purchase a new one.

DEVICE REQUIREMENTS FOR 6th–12th GRADE

Students in 6th & 7th grade are required to have access to a computer with an internet connection and printer at home. Students in 8th 12th grade are required to have their own device to bring to school for classroom assignments. They should also have internet capabilities and a printer at home. Geneva does not specify a particular device—it could be a traditional laptop computer, an iPad paired with a keyboard, or a Chromebook. However, it must meet these basic (and crucial) requirements:

  • A physical keyboard to facilitate writing
  • A screen size of at least 7 inches, and no more than 17.3 inches
  • A battery that provides a minimum of 3 hours of working time between charges (and preferably at least 6 hours). As an expectation of class preparation, the battery would be required to be fully charged at the beginning of each day.
  • Ability to connect to Google Drive

PORTFOLIOS AND BACKPACKS

Students in K4–1st grade use a portfolio bag—this is included in the supply package for K4 students and available at the school store for new kindergarten and 1st grade students.

Students in 2nd–12th grade require a backpack. Wheeled backpacks are not permitted at The Geneva School. They present a fire hazard, and our classrooms and narrow hallways simply cannot accommodate them. TGS has made considerable effort to reduce the bulk and weight that grammar school students must carry in their backpacks on a daily basis. Dialectic and rhetoric students should learn to use their locker effectively to minimize the load they must carry. If your child requires a medical exemption to this policy, you may submit an exemption form to the dean of students.
