School Supply Lists
Without the correct school supplies, children can have a hard time staying up on their lessons and keeping pace with the rest of the class. Therefore spending money on quality supplies is vital to their success. At Global Village Academy- Douglas County teachers have carefully planned out their lessons for the year, and have then decided what supplies students will need to be successful within those activities.  In addition, in grades 3-7, students will be maintaining an AVID binder, an organizational tool that supports and promotes student success and independence.  The binder is a tool that is established a system for storing and organizing all materials that students are given to support their learning at school and at home.  This system relies heavily on color-coding so please pay special attention to requests for supplies (folders, pens, etc..) in specific colors!
All supplies should be dropped off at Meet the Teacher Night* to student’s English teacher (English teachers will distribute supplies to Immersion teachers).
