Plan Your Route, Make A Shopping List

If you’re heading out to do your back to school shopping, plan in advance to minimize stress and make the most out of your time here at Hillcrest. Start by writing the places you’ll need to visit by referencing the complete list of stores that are open and checking their new hours of operation, available here.


Create a categorized checklist for the things you’ll need for different grades and years. Here are some ideas to help you get started:

  • Technology: Stay up-to-date with gadgets that let you study smart like a USB hub that keeps you plugged in and wireless headphones with a built-in microphone and noise-cancelling capabilities.
  • Clothes: Sort through the closet and drawers to see what you already have and what you need to buy such as basics you need to stock up on and any additional pieces on your shopping wish list.
  • Accessories: If you’re returning to school, step into the new year in style with footwear essentials like sneakers and boots that’ll help complete any outfit. Don’t forget about your backpack! Look for one that’s durable and as functional as it is comfortable. Even if you’re schooling from home, you’ll still need cozy shoes or slippers that offer comfort and support while class is in session.
  • School supplies: Notebooks, binders, pencils, pens, markers, highlighters, erasers and rulers need not be boring. Inject fun into your stationary essentials by choosing pastel hues, bright colours and even rainbow tie-dye, or personalizing them with stickers. If you’re learning virtually this year, tech will be top of mind, along with other remote-learning gear.
  • Furniture: Whether you’re learning virtually or completing assignments at home, make sure your workstation is ready to go with an ergonomic desk and a chair.
