School supplies

You are not required to purchase instructional supplies for your child’s classroom, but any donations are greatly needed and appreciated. The following are our Rancho San Diego Elementary teacher wish lists by grade. 

Please note that individual teachers often have specific needs in addition to or in lieu of items on their grade’s wish list. Sometimes teachers get inundated with certain supplies but receive none of other supplies. We recommend stocking up on these basics at back-to-school sales, but save some money aside to spend after the school year starts so you know what your teacher’s specific needs are. 

Sometimes teachers run out of certain supplies before the school year is over, so expect that your teacher will communicate with parents regarding ongoing supply needs.
