Our PTO (Parent/Teacher Organization) will once again be offering prepaid school-supply boxes as an option for supply purchases. We are ordering supplies from the same company as last year, School Tool Box. School Tool Box offers products chosen by our teachers, and is exactly what is on your child’s supply list. They offer brand names such as Crayola® and Elmers®. The entire package comes in a reusable, personalized box.
This program will save you time, making “back-to-school” less hectic and more enjoyable for both students and parents. All boxes will be delivered to your child’s classroom before the Open House on August 28th, 2019.
If you are interested in participating, online orders can be placed at: www.schooltoolbox.com
- Click on “Register for an Account” to get started.
- Add-On Items are items that your teacher would appreciate, but are not required.
New this year: Earphones or earbuds are also required for all students next year, and will also be available as an add-on item. No need to purchase if you already have headphones/earbuds from last year.
**No orders will be accepted after June 23rd, 2019, so don’t wait!**
Additionally, the PTO is offering planners and calculators for purchase online. Planners are needed for 3rd grade (English only), 4th grade (English and Chinese), 5th grade (English and Chinese), and all Navigator students.
- Calculators are required for 4th grade (English and Chinese) and 4/5 Navigators.
- Planners cost $5, and calculators cost $15. These purchases should be made by August 20th. All purchased planners and calculators will be delivered to the classroom.
