Why do we provide school supplies?

六合神算 strives to provide a free, public education of the highest quality for all students. Buying school supplies 鈥 in addition to the many other fees associated with school and activities 鈥 is a financial hardship for many families. Our community generously supports our schools in numerous ways, and so much is already asked of parents related to fundraising and fees. Our schools will purchase the supplies students need for learning, as we do with books and other materials.

Goals:

  • Reduce the school supply financial hardship to families as much as possible over time;
  • Eliminate waste for supplies that aren鈥檛 used by the end of the year as well as parents鈥 time and gas money; and
  • Support families in using time saved from school supply shopping to focus on setting learning goals for the new school year and planning for time and space at home for reading and homework.
