Elementary school students will receive a 30-piece supply kit that contains: 1 single-subject spiral notebook, 3 double-pocket organizer folders, a zip top canvas pencil case, 5 pencils, 5 ballpoint pens, 5 crayons, 2 highlighters, a 12” ruler, 2 glue sticks, 1 pencil sharpener with dome lid, 5” blunt-tip safety scissors and 3 erasers. Middle and high school students will receive a 45-piece supply kit that contains: 2 single-subject spiral notebooks, 1 composition notebook, 4 double-pocket organizer folders, a zip top canvas pencil case, 5 pencils, 5 ballpoint pens, 5 colored pencils, 10 crayons, 3 highlighters, a 12” ruler, 2 glue sticks, 1 pencil sharpener with dome lid, 5” blunt-tip safety scissors and 4 erasers. District leaders will be on six campuses on the first day of school to personally issue the free supplies to students. FBISD leaders will be at:

• Glover Elementary • Goodman Elementary • Holley Elementary • Barbara Jordan Elementary • Mission Bend-Glen Elementary • Ridgemont Elementary
