School Supply Lists

The following links provide general school supply lists by grade. However, your child’s classroom may request additional supplies so be sure to check with your child’s teacher at the start of school.

Richmond City:
To find school-specific lists, find your school’s website at using the “Our Schools” drop-down menu near the top of your screen.

Other List Finders:
For additional help finding school supply lists, stores like Target and WalMart offer “list finder” programs that allow you to enter your school or teacher’s name and find the list on their site automatically. Be sure to check the links below if you will be doing your shopping at one of these stores. Please note that some school lists may not yet be loaded on the store’s site, so be sure to check back often for updates if your list is not available.
