As in years past we will once again be purchasing all needed school supplies (except for backpacks, lunch boxes, and water bottles) for students–with our ability to buy in bulk through the Bend-LaPine School District we are able to save you money and time by purchasing school supplies through our purchasing co-op. To cover the cost of these supplies we request a donation from each family. Also, this year we are including some additional expenses (rather than collecting each time there is a field trip) so the requested donation is $80 for students in K-2, and $100 for students in Grades 3-5. As always, this is a donation and any family for which this presents a hardship should let us know—we have you covered if needed! Also, if you’d like to add a little to your donation to help out a family in need that would be greatly appreciated.
