Back to School Shopping - Gear for the Adventurous Child!


It is that time of year again - back to school shopping is in full swing!  HCMA parents often ask me what school supplies they need to purchase for their children.  HCMA purchases all traditional supplies for the children.  We take care of pencils, crayons, markers, etc.  We ask that our parents supply their children with a backpack that fits them well, as well as a lunchbox and water bottle, on the first day of school.

As the weather changes, gear becomes very important to our children.  We spend a large amount of time outside and gear makes all of the difference!  Back in 2015 I wrote this blog post about items that make our days easier.  The list has been updated but the tried and true items like Bog Boots remain.  Please have a look at that post and start planning for cooler days.  Do not become overwhelmed by the list.  You are not expected to purchase the name brands mentioned or get the items new.  We have a wonderful HCMA community that shares gear that  alumni have grown out of!  Let us know if you are looking for something specific and be sure to share with the group if you find a deal on an item.  

Please take a moment to review the gear list here!
