Houston Grade 8 Supply List

2019-20 Houston Hall Grade 8 Supply List

Hall Color – Red

We strongly recommend that students follow a color-code system to organize their classroom notebooks, folders and binders. A color-code system helps students quickly locate materials needed for class and assists students with the correct filing of handouts, homework, and other class materials.

When purchasing supplies, please try to purchase necessary materials according to the suggested building wide color-code system.
