2015-2016 School Supply Pack Order Forms Due July 7, 2015

The Bedford PTG will be offering 2015-2016 school “Supply Packs” to families who wish to streamline the process of purchasing school supplies. Itemized order forms with a list of the supplies and pricing will be sent home with report cards.

*Parent Information Letter*

Supply Pack Information:
– Products will vary by grade and school and are based on the teacher supply lists expected to be distributed on the last day of school.
– School supply packs for order will be available in grades K-6 as specified by your child’s teacher.
– Supplies will be brands your student’s teacher has selected.
– Packaged prices are competitive with in-store pricing.

Ordering Options:

Option 1: Write a check indicating that you would like the pre-packaged school supply kit and return the order form by the specified due date. Supply packs will be available in your child’s classroom on the first day of school.

Option 2:  Purchase supplies as you always have.

– All students ordering the packs will start school with the exact same teacher approved supplies.
– Kids can still shop for lunch boxes, backpacks, special class needs such as World Languages, and any other “special” items they want for school.
– Ordering the supply packs takes a lot of the heavy lifting off the chore of racing around to multiple stores before school starts to gather everything your child will need.
– The PTG gets discounted rates due to volume sales and is able to net a small profit that gets funneled directly back into the schools.
