School supplies made easy!

Get your child’s complete supply kit for next year (as prepared by our teachers) at (www.shopttkits.com). Use account # 24915. Avoid the crowds and empty shelves during the back to school craze! The supply kits will be delivered directly to your child’s classroom just before school starts.

Please note that Schoola has changed their policy and will only accept children’s and women’s clothes that retailed at $30 or more. That means almost nothing from H&M, The Children’s Place or Target, or any T-shirts, shorts or leggings will make the cut. Since they charge YCS to ship items, we are asking families to please sort carefully before sending anything in that Schoola won’t sell. Thank you!
