Parents can find school supply lists for Draper Middle School to prepare for the upcoming 2018-19 school year.

Draper Middle School recognizes that school supplies are costly.  We have made every attempt while compiling the list above to consolidate items and minimize the expense to our families.  Please understand that if your student runs out of consumable supplies, (i.e.: paper, pencils, pens) that you may have to replenish them during the school year.  Also, the special area classes listed above may not be the class that your student is taking the first semester or first quarter.  Please check with your student about their schedule and needs for quarter 1.  If you have any questions, please call the Guidance Office at 518-356-8370. Thank you for your continued support for your student!
