TPJHS Summer Shopping Dos and Don’ts

Often, parents would like to go shopping during the summer for school supplies, but are not always sure of what to get, especially for students new to TPJHS. We do have a general list on our website, but here is another list of suggestions made by our teachers this year. Although we cannot guarantee what each student will need due to their individualized schedules, and teachers may still suggest items not on this list after the school year begins, this should get you started. Remember that if you are struggling to provide necessary items for you child due to financial demands, please contact the school to discuss the situation. Teachers are also happy to accept donations of these items if you are shopping and they happen to be on sale! This way they can distribute them throughout the year to others who may have lost or damaged their materials and are not able to get a replacement.
