Supply List

 
With Virginia Chance School’s inclusive tuition structure, most of the fees for student supplies have been incorporated into the tuition so that families can accurately budget and plan for their child’s educational expenses. Labeling is important for all items that come into the school- please make this a priority for all your items. Please reference this list when preparing for the upcoming school year:

All PRESCHOOLERS  

1. Change of clothes: in a clear plastic baggie labeled with your child’s name, appropriate for the current weather. Update as the seasons change.
 
2. Rain Boots: labeled inside (less likely to rub off)
