Based on a model used by other elementary schools in our district, the staff and PAC have decided to order bulk school supplies for the current school year.
-less expensive option for parents (compared to the packs ordered through Creative Children)
-less waste for the school and families
…in past years same-grade teachers needed to compromise on the supply list for their grade, but often times there are leftover supplies at the end of the year, or not enough supplies mid-year
…each year many students are using my personal scissors, fine liners, white board markers, etc. because either they've lost theirs, or run out of supplies
Some supplies will be kept for communal use in the classroom and can be re-used year to year (i.e. scissors, pastels, paints), but students will also have their own sets of supplies (markers, pencil crayons, etc.)
We're hoping that this model of supply ordering leads to sustainability and affordability.
Bulk supply orders are strictly optional.
In the "Documents" portion of this page, you will find the order form for ordering bulk supplies through the P.A.C. and you will also find school supply lists by grade if you choose to buy your own.
