School Supplies


Dear Oak Park Parents or Guardians,

Welcome to Oak Park Elementary School! Our school team is very much looking forward to working with you and your child. Anticipating next school year, we have found that students like to personalize their supplies and belongings by having special folders and favorite colors of pens and pencils. With this in mind, elementary staffs have created grade level lists of necessary supplies for families to purchase for the start and as needed throughout the school year. If assistance is needed in obtaining any of the supplies, please contact the school counselor, Mindy Schewe or me.
Please reference the list of supplies as printed below. Should you have any questions regarding this communication, please contact the school office at 215-368-4017.

In addition to personal supplies, general classroom supplies such as tissues, wet wipes, etc. are needed throughout the school year. Individual classroom teachers will be sharing information and requesting voluntary donations of specific supplies as needs arise. Thank you in advance for helping to supply your child with the materials and resources that are needed to be successful in our schools. Have a wonderful summer!


Jonathan Winkle,
