2015 - 2016 School Supplies for Purchase

Each year, the PTA offers parents the opportunity to purchase pre-packaged school supplies that have been approved by your child's teachers for the school year. This offer gives parents a one-stop purchase option for school supplies, avoiding the worry and hassle at the end of the summer of having to find all the supplies needed on the teacher's list.

It's not too late to order school supplies for the new school year.  School supply packages can be purchased from the PTA through August 19 and will be delivered directly to your child's classroom during the first two weeks of school. Prices for each package by grade are as follows:

        • Kindergarten - $39
        • First Grade - $47
        • Second Grade - $53
        • Third Grade - $55
        • Fourth Grade - $47
        • Fifth Grade - $45

To purchase school supplies, log in to the Membership Toolkit, go to the Account Login page and select the "2015 - 2016 School Supplies Sales" form. (School supply packages that were purchased before June 13 will be delivered to your child's classroom for Meet the Teacher.) Please contact Jennifer Hersh at with any questions.
