We are doing our Elementary school supply ordering a little different this year and we are happy to be able to offer an economical way for you to purchase school supplies without all the hassle of going shopping. Keep in mind that there will NOT be a free school supply drive at Clickstop this summer.

All elementary students will receive a flyer about the sale to take home next week so watch your students backpack for more information on how you can order.

Currently this is for Elementary aged students only, we hope to offer is to older grades in the future. All buildings school supply lists can be found on the Registration tab of our school website.

Our sale starts May 1st and ends June 22nd. Orders and payment are online only and we think the site is very easy to navigate. This year the sale is for elementary students only. When you place your order you will be able to purchase a "basic" set of supplies or a set that also includes the "optional" items on our list like Kleenex and disinfecting wipes. You will also have an option to purchase a pack to donate to another student.

The plan is to have the packs on student desks at Back to School Night in August.

Here is a link to a video that explains the program: http://promotion.educationalproducts.com/packsvideo
