School Supplies for 2014-15

Just a friendly reminder that the school supply fundraiser paper forms can no longer be turned in at the school.  That doesn’t mean you are out of luck though.  Orders can still be placed online until June 9th at http://www.schoolsuppliesamericaonlineorders.com/

This is a fundraiser for the PTA.  If you do not get your orders in by June 9th you will be responsible for purchasing supplies (click links below to view/print list) and bringing your child’s school supplies to the school on Back to School night.
