One of the fun rituals that signals the return of a new school year is the shopping for new school supplies! Ah the joy of shopping aisle by aisle, searching item by item for the right things while you bond with your child over deciding on a new lunch bag in green or blue? Green, or blue? Oh, look it's in red! Red, green or blue?
Actually, some of us do love this wonderful ritual, and others do not. For the "do-nots," you can order a supply pack in June to be delivered to your child's class in August.
Please click on the grade level your student will be in the 2019-20 school year for a printable copy of his/her supply list.
The Scrip Program is an ongoing fundraiser which benefits the elementary school and its students. Scrip is just another name for "gift certificate" or "gift card". Scrip cards are used exactly like you would use any other gift card at a place of business.
When you purchase Scrip you are never buying things you don't need - You are simply trading your cash, that you would have used at a store, for the Scrip cards to use instead. The first link below answers some frequently asked questions about Scrip. If you have more questions or would like to talk to someone in person about the Scrip program, we welcome you to contact Rachel Kiernan.
