School Supplies Survey
The PTSA is considering offering a service for all grades, where school supplies would be ordered for you based on your child's specific teacher's list. Supplies would be packaged and delivered to the school in a convenient box for pick-up.
In most cases, prices would be less than if you purchased the items individually. Please take a moment and fill out the survey so we can assess the interest in this service for next year. Posted 10/16/14
