School Supplies and Curriculum Materials
Carman Trails Supply and Material Pick Up is EXTENDED through Monday and Tuesday from 7:45 -3:45. Please call 314-415-6100 when you are in front of the school and we will bring your child's items out to you.
Previously Communicated:We have exciting news! The school supplies will be distributed in kits for all of our students during the week of August 17. Here’s the link to access more information about the school supplies as well as the supply fee. https://www.parkwayschools.net/Page/10391
We are currently getting a team to help us assemble the first wave of curriculum materials that students will need during the first weeks of school (i.e - math workbook pages, writing workshop paper, level reading books or chapter books, etc).
All students will have school supplies already packed in their bag at the supply pick up. If you prefer to not receive these supplies, just let us know when you arrive - no questions asked.
Here is updated language posted on the district's website. "In order to support distance learning at home for the first quarter, elementary families can order and pay for the school supplies box now which you can pick up at school before school begins. School supply boxes are an optional purchase for families who prefer to have school supplies at home now to support distance learning."
We want ALL students to have the necessary supplies at home while participating in distance learning. If you prefer to have the supplies that come in the kit, we would love for you to have them. If you prefer to use your own supplies, we understand that too. There is an option for a payment plan, scholarship, or let me know if I can support your family in another way too. If you would like to speak in more detail about ordering the kit and paying the supply fee, please give me a call at 314-415-6101 or email at email@example.com .
For the 2020-21 school year, Parkway will provide every K-12 student a Chromebook to support learning.
Please contact the Help Desk if you missed the Chromebook pick up last week. They will be able to schedule an appointment for you. They can be reached at 314-415-8181.
