School Supply List

This school supply list has been compiled by the Central Middle School staff to guide parents in purchasing supplies for their child. School supplies can be brought to school during Open House or, at the latest, on the first day of school. Some school supplies might need to be replenished during the school year. If you need financial assistance, contact your principal at 763-745-6010.
