Supply list for 2022-23 school year


Telra provides all of the basic classroom supplies for students such as pencils, notebooks, paper, scissors, glue, etc. Since our model involves children moving from class-to-class (and across grade levels) throughout the day, this a better way to ensure all students have what they need than asking parents to purchase off of a generic "grade level" list. It has the added benefit of saving you time.

We do ask that families provide the following personal supplies for their child:

  • Backpack

  • Lunch/snack box

  • Water bottle

  • Wired headphones

  • Zippered pencil pouch for 3-ring binder


Headphones

Every student at Telra needs a set of wired headphones with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. These are used for testing as well as some computer-based learning activities. Since every child has their own preferences on the fit and style of their headphones/earbuds, we ask that families provide them and send them in with your student on the first day of school. Example here.

For students in rising grades 4+, your headphones should include a microphone. (Younger students do not need a microphone, but it is ok if they have one.) Examples here and here.


Pencil Pouch

Similarly, every child should bring their own zippered pencil pouch (w/ holes to fit 3-ring binder) that they can use to carry their supplies from class-to-class. Since most other supplies will be provided by the school, providing your own pencil pouch lets children choose their favorite color or style and find something they can easily distinguish from their friends’ pouches. Examples here and here.


If you're buying custom labels with your child's name on them, Telra receives 20% of sales from Mabel's Labels when you choose "Telra Institute" in the dropdown at this link.
