School Supplies!

This year we have a new way for you to purchase your child's school supply list. Schooltoolbox provides your students with all of the school supplies they need for their grade level, according to your school's exact supply list. You can customize the box if you know you already have certain supplies. https://www.schooltoolbox.com/

FAQ about school supplies:
- Do I have to buy from schooltoolbox.com?
NO! :-), buy what you can from the list provided by the school, wherever you decided to shop. Here is the Ardomore Elementary School supply list by grade:
- Finances are tight, what if I can't buy supplies right now?
It's OK!!!  Your help is greatly appreciated, but do not worry if it's not possible at this time. From the school, "Every Ardmore Elementary School student will be supplied with the instructional materials (e.g. textbooks, paper, pencils, crayons, etc.,) necessary for their academic success.  We recognize that families may like to send in supplies to help supplement what can be provided at school.  You may choose to send listed supplies with your child to be shared with the rest of the class, and help us stretch school resources further."  THANK YOU!!!
Help fund school events and supplies with Employee Giving and Time Matching
If you work for a company that matches donations or pays for your volunteer hours, you can help Ardmore double its funds.
