Purchase RPE school supplies for next year online through July 14th!

Take an item off your To-Do list and support our great school at the same time! Purchase school supplies for the 2017-2018 school year online through July 14th. No need to travel from store to store in a mad dash for spirals and folders the week before school starts. Simply visit the EPI site today and your child's supplies will be waiting in their new classroom when school starts in August.

In addition to being convenient, the EPI school supply sale is a fundraiser for RPE PTA. Ten dollars from every purchase goes directly toward funding programs and enrichment at River Place Elementary.

Ordering Instructions:

Visit www.educationalproducts/shoppacks and enter code LEA024 (three letters, three numbers). Be sure to enter your student's grade for NEXT YEAR. Packs will be delivered to your child's classroom in time for Open House in August.
