Back to School Solutions is a company that provides a purchasing service for your Fall school supplies.  Each student has been sent a form home with the instructions and the list of school supplies needed for next school year on the back.  You are not in any way obligated to purchase your supplies through this company, but the parents who have in the past have been very pleased with the quality of the products and the ease of getting their supplies.  Instructions are on the form for ordering through the school or online.  Orders are delivered to the school before school starts for parent pickup and they contain name labels for all items.

If you are ordering through the school your order must be in by June 21st.  If ordering online you can order until August 4th.



We are once again asking parents to send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to the school if you are unable to pick up your child’s report card on the morning of June 30th.
