Order School Supplies Online!

Hello Big Woods Families!

We are excited to announce you can now order your child’s 2018/2019 school supplies online! They will arrive in a kit to be picked up on your child’s desk during open house (August 27th).

Each individual teacher may request an additional item that is NOT INCLUDED in the base kit. Be sure to check your child’s list when they receive their teacher assignment in June for any additional requests.

Please contact Big Woods PTO with any questions.

Thank you and enjoy your summer!
