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 Book/Uniform & Tax-Free Day Sale

Used Book & Uniform Sale

Used books are available at the Used Book Sale, sponsored by the Ursuline Parents' Association and held in early August. Used uniform blazers and skirts are also available at the sale.

Used books may also be purchased directly from other students. Before you buy used books, you will need the Ursuline Academy book list and your daughter's course schedule to ensure you purchase the correct books for her courses.

Tax-Free Sale

On the same day as the Used Book & Uniform Sale, don't forget to shop the Bear Necessities Tax-Free Sale in the Library. You will find required supplies, English paperbacks, uniform fleece, and other spirit wear. New students will also be able to buy their laptops tax-free at this sale.
