Chesterfield County School Supply List 2023-2024


1. Pencils

Note: Please keep in mind that the following list is just a general recommendation and may differ from what your child’s teacher requests for the 2023-2024 school year. Check with their teachers directly for their specific needs for the 2023-2024 school year if applicable. Many cities, counties, and non-profit organizations host free back-to-school supply giveaway events across cities for low-income households, immigrant families, and homeless children – Catholic Charities is known for hosting such giveaways across many locations nationwide.

Many national retailers also provide free school supplies and uniforms to children in need. Organizations like The Salvation Army, local charities, and churches often partner with these retailers to help those most in need. For more information about such programs contact your local charity or call 211 referral service for help; online websites, apps, and stores may offer new or gently used items available for donation or at discounted prices – visit your charity of choice to inquire further or check with them directly for availability of goods before purchasing!

3. Notebooks

Notebooks are essential school supplies. Teachers require their students to use notebooks for various subjects, making having multiple notebooks on hand essential. If you’re having trouble affording school supplies for your child, charities such as the Salvation Army offer free back-to-school assistance programs in your area that provide uniforms, desks, and school supplies such as notebooks. Furthermore, the Freecycle app can also help connect you to people near you offering items free of charge such as uniforms.

6. Pencil Bags

Similar to pencil cases but featuring a slimmer design, pouches can be used both within binders or independently. Many feature zipper closures for secure closure and an easily searchable interior that makes finding what you need a breeze.

Small items that often get misplaced at the bottom of handbags such as ID cards, credit cards, keys, and hand sanitizers can easily get misplaced; pencil bags provide an organized way of keeping these essentials close at hand and are also great for transportable storage of cosmetics such as lipsticks, mascaras and eye shadows on-the-go.

This pencil case lies flat when empty, yet expands when filled with pens and pencils. Featuring a clear zip-closure and carry loop to keep tools secure during school or work sessions. Water-resistant for easier cleaning purposes and complete with an included stylus!

8. Pencil Cases

Pencil cases are an essential tool when packing school supplies for your children or searching for upgrades; whether that means their first year at school or upgrading, pencil cases offer an easy and organized way of keeping all their writing tools together and easily accessible. With various styles and sizes to meet all student needs, pencil cases provide the ideal way to store writing instruments safely.

These aesthetic pencil cases stand out with eye-catching color combinations and bold patterns, creating an overall playful and fun appearance.

Many cases come equipped with extra pockets or compartments designed specifically to store pencil sharpeners, dongles, and other small items – perfect for keeping adapters, earbuds, and mints organized and less likely to get lost or forgotten! Just be sure that the case you purchase can stand up to frequent use!

10. Clipboards

30 teachers hailing from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Guyana, Jamaica, Mexico, and Trinidad and Tobago are beginning their first year with Chesterfield County Public Schools this August. Each has met Virginia licensure requirements and holds a college degree in education; further information can be found on their school system website. Parents will also have access to ParentVUE and StudentVUE to view student schedules and assignments beginning August 9 at 5 p.m.

Before making any purchases for school supplies, please consult with your child’s teacher first. Each teacher may have their own list of recommended supplies. Furthermore, every job available within the school system – teachers, cafeteria workers, substitutes, administrators, classroom aides, and bus drivers — is listed on its website so you can find something meaningful to work at!
