The KCD Parent Association is once again offering easy, online school supply ordering for grades 5–8. This optional order process is meant to simplify school supply shopping by offering all required items for each grade in one place. You can order online by clicking here or via the link below. Please note that:
  • It is not mandatory to purchase through this system. This page also has links to all the school supply lists if you prefer to buy your own. 
  • Remember that when you add all the items required for a grade to your shopping cart, it's possible there are items you already own and do not need. Please be sure to remove these items from your cart prior to checking out.
  • We realize you may receive several boxes for your order. This is out of our control as Yubbler, our supplier, works with Office Depot, who sends products from multiple warehouses. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.
