School Supply Kits

We will once again be offering the opportunity for you to purchase your child’s school supplies through EPI. Through EPI, you can order everything your child will need from one place and have it directly shipped to school and distributed to your child’s classroom by the start of school in the fall. Please use this link to place your order by June 12.

Please note that headphones are required for all grades. I know most students have their own headphones, but if you would like to purchase them with your kit please add them before you check out. 5th grade please add flash cards if needed, they are required by teachers.

Any questions please contact Kelly Moscickis at kellym1018@yahoo.com.
