ORDER SCHOOL TOOL KITS FOR NEXT YEAR!
ORDER ONLINE BY JUNE 30 FOR BEST PRICING
Ordering a tool kit is NOT compulsory, but it helps keeps your child's classroom stocked with much needed supplies (chosen by the teachers), supports the PTA, and keeps you from having to rush around shopping and lugging bags of supplies to the school in September. These supplies will be delivered to the school by the end of August and then hand delivered to your child's classroom (by movers and a few hearty volunteers) before the start of school. Easy peasy!
