With school starting back soon on August 6, it is time again to begin shopping for school supplies. Here is a list of what each public elementary school in Buckhead is recommending for their students to have for the upcoming school year.
The deadline for ordering supplies in bulk from the school online is July 20. The items for each grade level can be ordered here.
The Morris Brandon Back to school "Bee-nanza" will be held Friday, August 3 from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. at the Primary Center and 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. at the Main Campus. You can meet your teacher, order school supplies (although you will have to wait in line), get carpool numbers, bus information and buy logo items.
Supply lists for all grade levels at E. Rivers Elementary School are posted in the PDF document to the right and can be found here.
Additionally, E. Rivers will be hosting their "Celebration of Learning" open house event on Friday, August 3 at 9 a.m.
The "Kiddos" after school program will be taking registration and payment that day and provide a parent orientation at noon.
The Sarah Smith PTA is no longer selling pre-packaged school supplies. Each family will be responsible for buying supplies for their students. Students should have school supplies with them for the first day of school or can bring them on Friday, August 3 to the "Celebration of Learning."

The "Celebration of Learning" (COL) will be held August 3 from 9 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. on the intermediate campus and 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. on the primary campus.
Other important dates and information to keep in mind are:
- Kindergarten class assignments will be mailed on July 31, 2012.
- A Kindergarten meet and greet will be held Thursday, August 2, from 8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. on the Primary Campus Lower Playground.
- Teacher assignments are not available before the COL. Parents are asked to bring their calendar and cash/check book to the COL, as agendas for grades 2nd through 5th will be on sale for $7.00. Each student from those grades is required to purchase one.
School Supplies are purchased through the PTA for Kindergarten and First Grade. The cost is $100 ($65 for Instructional Materials and $35 for School Supplies). These are additional materials that teachers want the children to have that are not covered by APS. If you have not purchased your child's supplies for the 2012-2013 school year, you can order them at Celebration of Learning (COL) on Friday, August 3, at the Primary Campus. Or you can take a check by the Primary Office.
School supply lists for each grade level can be found here.
