Summer assignments and back to school shopping Some – not all—high school classes have summer assignments, watch for a postcard in the mail if your class is one of them. There is not a high school supply list. It is recommended students bring a notebook and writing utensil to new student orientation and the first day of school to take notes. The junior high supply list can be found on the BSM Parent website here.
