Find Everything You Need at Bear Necessities

The Bear Necessities store on Ursuline campus carries required textbooks, school supplies, and spirit items.


The bookstore compiles the Ursuline Academy booklist for each school year. Parents should purchase both first and second semester books at one time. Some of the required books and supplies are available exclusively at Bear Necessities. The English Department requires that all paperback novels be purchased new. Bear Necessities stocks all of the required paperback novels for English classes.

School Supplies

Bear Necessities stocks many of the school supplies that students need for classes, including copy paper, flashdrives, poster board, index cards, report covers, folders, pens, pencils and notebooks.

Bear Necessities also stocks supplies required for specific courses, such as chemistry goggles, geometers, compasses, graph paper books and P.E. uniforms. Bear Necessities store hours allow students to conveniently shop for needed supplies before school, at lunch, or between classes.

Show Your Spirit!

Bear Necessities carries a full line of Ursuline logo items and casual clothing to show your school spirit. There's always something new and cute in stock! In addition to in-store purchase, orders may be placed by phone 469-232-3581, or by email to Rachel Brewer. Visa and MasterCard are accepted.

Used Uniform & Graduation Dress Sale

Used Uniform & Graduation Dress Sale

The used uniform uniform and graduation dress sale is held in late June. Items such as blazers, shirts, skirts, and graduation dresses are available at the sale.

Ursuline will not have a Used Book Sale, but you can still get money back for your books. Follett, our textbook provider, has an online buyback site. Go to the Sell Back section, follow instructions, and you'll receive a quote for your books. They will also give you a free shipping label, so you can send the books back. If you don't have a box, bring your books to Bear Necessities with the shipping label and we will ship it out for you.
