School Supply Lists

Palencia Elementary Families,
Our school supply lists for the 2017-2018 school year are attached. Notice that we’ve included an optional digital device. The St. Johns County School District is now open to a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environment. PES participated in a pilot program within our school district a couple of years ago. The 1:1 computer pilot provided a device for each student. Each K-2nd student had an iPad and each 3rd – 5th grade student had a laptop. Unfortunately, funding does not allow our school district to maintain this environment. Our stakeholders, however, support maintaining the 1:1 environment. Therefore, we are providing information for a personal device on our supply list. Please know this is an optional item. District issued devices will continue to be available in our classrooms. Students will access the district devices in various situations, sometimes independently and sometimes sharing the device in a collaborative team. As our enrollment increases, and our inventory ages, we are hoping that many of our families will participate in the BYOD Program so that our device to student ratio remains as low as possible. The program overview and product specifications are available at the websites below. Again, this is an optional purchase and we appreciate your consideration.
