Everybody loves shopping for school supplies, but it can be a challenge to find the right lists of supplies that you need. Luckily, we’ve compiled a guide to buying school supplies for all the schools in Lubbock, Lubbock-Cooper, and Frenship districts. Get your school supply shopping done Aug. 10-12 on tax-free weekend to save some extra cash.
We found all the lists.
Not all elementary schools publish individual school supply lists. If your child’s school is not listed below, Lubbock ISD has a generic school supply list for K-5 that parents can use as a guide when shopping for school supplies.
Supply Lists by School (Note: not all schools have their own.)
Below are links to all the individual school supply lists posted online. Many elementary schools that aren’t listed. Schools not listed are using the Lubbock ISD district supply list
- Lubbock-Cooper Central
- Lubbock-Cooper East
- Lubbock-Cooper North
- Lubbock-Cooper West
- North Ridge
- Oak Ridge
- Roscoe Wilson
- Upland Heights
- Willow Bend
- Dunbar College Prep
- Laura Bush
- O.L. Slaton
- Smylie Wilson
- Talkington School for Young Women Leaders
- Terra Vista
At the high school level, schools don’t typically publish supplies by grade level. Instead, individual teachers send out supply lists depending on your child’s schedule. Though common sense says they’ll require pencils, pens, notebooks and a planner!
Need help providing school supplies?
For parents that are worried about being able to afford school supplies, there are several community resources you can seek out. Read below to find assistance in providing your children with school supplies.

Lubbock Dream Center
Lubbock Dream Center volunteers have filled 1,000 backpacks with school supplies that will be given away to children grades K-8. The giveaway will be Saturday, August 13 starting at 8 a.m. Backpacks will be given away on a first-come, first-serve basis at the Lubbock Dream Center (1111 30th Street) and all children must be present to receive a backpack.
Give families in need school supplies.
If you’re able to help provide school supplies to families need, you can most likely give them directly to your student’s teacher or the school they attend. But, there are other school supply donation centers if you don’t have a specific school you’d like to give to.
United Supermarkets Project SOS: Supply our Students
The United Supermarkets is again partnering with Lubbock-area schools to host “Project SOS: Supply our Students,” a school supply drive for local students in need. From July 22 through Aug. 11, shoppers can purchase school supplies and drop them into barrels located near the entrance of any United Supermarkets, Market Street or Amigos locations in Lubbock and Slaton. They are also encouraged to make a cash donation during checkout. School districts that will benefit from the drive include Cooper, Frenship, Lubbock, Roosevelt, and Slaton. Each school receiving donations will directly issue them to families and children in need.
A special kick-off event will be held July 22 at 10:00 a.m. at United Supermarkets’ 82nd and Boston location, with a special shopping spree involving superintendents of participating Lubbock-area school districts.
