This school year may be over, but it is never too early to start thinking about next year! 

SCHOOL SUPPLIES, the first thing we are asked to bring Back to School!  Save yourself the time and the stress of school supply shopping. No more traveling to three different stores for all your supplies, do it all in 5 minutes online!

Pre-Ordered kits will be ready for
pick-up at Meet & Greet!

(date yet to be determined).

This is NOT a fundraiser – total cost goes to school supplies for your Bells Ferry student!
