School Supply Update – New Exciting Changes for 2015/2016 School Year

 Purchasing-Like last year, supplies will be purchased for EVERY student ahead of time.  Do not go out and purchase supplies on your own unless you want some for home.  If you wanted to buy some special pencils or a fun eraser for your child to bring that is fine but they do not NEED to bring anything.  I would like to add that the supplies are bought at a huge discount due to the huge quantities we buy.  These savings are passed on to you.  This is NOT a fundraiser for the school.
2.  Payment-Unlike any other year we will NOT be preselling.  Instead the price of the supplies will be automatically included in your Early Bird Market/Beginning of School costs just like your class fund.  You now don’t have to worry if/when you paid or if you ordered ahead.  It will be automatic in the fall.
If you are unable to pay we have procedures in place to help.  Just contact Ms. Harrington or Ms. Flores for information.
We are making these changes to minimize confusion that leads to parents overbuying supplies or questions of whether supplies had been pre-purchased.  This also helps keep our wonderful Horn Teachers happy because they know all children will have the correct supplies when school starts. Also there is no anxiety because one student doesn’t have the same items as everyone else.

If you have questions please  email Kelly Grubbs –   kgrubbs@sbcglobal.net.
