SCHOOL FEES and SUPPLY LISTS

Each year Belding students need basic supplies in order to succeed.

For grades K- 4 the school fee includes  a Belding spirit t-shirt AND includes all classroom supplies needed (purchased by teachers with student fee funds): pencils, paper, folders, dry erase markers, tissue, disinfecting wipes, crayons, markers, notebooks, colored pencils, etc.

For grades 5 -8 the school fee is lower and students are required to bring a list of supplies on the first day of school.  teachers provide classroom supplies, but students learn to bring and track their own materials to prepare them for high school. The school provides shared supplies.  Here is the list of supplies students in 5-8 need to bring:
