Would you rather spend a summer day driving from store to store to purchase school supplies or get everything you need in one easy box? Great news! Once again, we are offering a pre-packaged school supply program this year. Supply orders include the exact colors, quantities, and brands your teachers have approved and are delivered directly to your child’s classroom by the start of school in August.
Not only do you save time and get all the supplies your teachers requested in one easy order, but our school receives a percentage of your order. Get your back-to-school shopping out of the way early, help support our school and enjoy a summer day!
Registration is now open through May 5th for the Promising Scholars program, which is a no cost learning camp provided by MNPS for students entering K-12 grade. Visit https://www.mnps.org/summer for more information and to apply.
