NEW STUDENT SUPPLIES SYSTEM and STUDENT FEE for 2018-2019



Dear parents,


We have simplified your Back to School shopping for September. Our fantastic Elmdale staff team will collect a $20/child voluntary student fee for each child in September, and the office staff will take care of acquiring all the school supplies for your child, for the full year! An email will be send to all families in September, providing details about how to use the SchoolCash Online system to make the payment.


At the OCDSB, the annual student fee is always voluntary. We hope that most families will appreciate the new system and will find it convenient, and possibly more affordable than doing your own shopping. We feel this system will be so much simpler for teachers to set-up classroom resources and easier for students to access the specific resources they need to complete their tasks. This will also allow staff to organize their duo-tang by colour for specific subjects, to ensure consistent workbooks style, and that supplies are quickly replenished as needed.


In 2018-2019, your $20/child student fee will cover the cost of all consumables such as pencils, erasers, glue, duo-tangs, etc. It will ALSO include the cost of the mail bags for our younger students and the cost of the agendas for students in Grade 2-6.



Getting ready for September- Only the following items will be essential.

● A backpack that is big enough to hold a large picture book from the library and their mail bag.

● A lunch box and water bottle

● Indoor running shoes. Please send in shoes your child can put on independently. Velcro is suggested for younger learners.  

● 2nd pair of Indoor running shoes - if your child is registered with Mothercraft.

● Kinder to Grade 2: A change of clothes in a labelled Ziploc bag to be kept at school. Please label the bag, as well as the clothes inside.


PLEASE LABEL EVERYTHING that you send to school. Merci beaucoup!
