Dear Cheltenham Families,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. We feel honored to be the school you chose for your family. Providing the best experience for your child is our number one priority and we can’t do this work without your support because parents are the first teacher. Your partnership makes this experience stronger for your child.
As a classroom teacher I remember how difficult it was to create the best school supply list that would both meet the needs of our classroom and not create a stress on family’s budget. At the end of the year I always found myself with extras of one thing and not enough of another. We also know that as a parent it can be frustrating to get all of the items on a supply list only to find out all of the supplies were considered “community supplies” and put in a giant tub to share.
Our solution is to do the big shopping for you! We purchased the materials that your child will need (composition books, homework folder, pencil box etc) on the very first day on instruction! All you will need to do is pay a $20 supply fee at registration. We hope this helps cut down on cost for your family and that you will be able to take the time to shop for a backpack and new school clothes instead of making sure you found all of the right pencils and notebooks! We have scholarships and payment plans available for large families. Let us know how we can support you.
In the event that you would like to purchase your own school supplies, we provided a list and a cost breakdown. We ask that you purchase exactly what is on the list so they have exactly what they need on the first day!
