School District Will Provide School Supplies for New School Year

  • As part of continued efforts to improve Service, Excellence, and Equity for all students and families, Renton School District will provide school supplies for all elementary and middle school students starting this fall (the 2018-2019 School Year). The district will purchase the school supplies that elementary and middle school students need for learning, and families will pay a low, one-time fee of $30 ($10 for families on free/reduced lunch) for the school supplies.

    • Pencils
    • Highlighters
    • Dividers
