The Elk Meadow teachers are able to save you time, money and reduce waste by purchasing our school supplies in bulk through the district's purchasing co-op.

Instead of purchasing a list of specific school supplies, families are invited to make a donation to the Elk Meadow school supplies fund to help defray the cost of classroom supplies and the teachers will do the shopping for you.

It couldn't be easier!

Just bring your donation to school at open house, on the first day of school or pay online. If you would like to pay online, just go to Touchbase and follow the instructions.

The most frequently asked question is the amount. We estimate the cost of supplies to be about $25 over the course of the academic year. Some parents wonder about making an extra donation. Your generosity is always appreciated and will help with families who are not able to make a donation.

Be sure your child has a backpack (with name on it) for carrying important things between home and school. You are invited to send a personal water bottle that your child can fill at school (also labeled), and it is important to have a pair of tennis shoes for physical education.

Please contact our FAN Coordinator, Heidi Odman, if you need help with these items.

Elk Meadow's 'savvy shoppers' will be hard at work rounding up the right materials for the children. If you have any questions or suggestions, please give us a call in the office.
