School Supply Kits for 2022-23 School Year

Hello Newton Collins Families!

Great News! This year the NCPTA will be offering the Teacher Tailored supply kit program which offers pre-packaged, school supply kits filled with the exact supplies requested by your child’s teacher.

No need to fight the hassle of retail stores searching for supplies with the masses. These kits are cost effective and convenient for purchasing your back-to-school supplies.

We will set up a location at Newton Collins on August 5 from 4:00 –6:00pm during “Meet the Teacher” for you to pick up the kits and deliver them to your child’s classroom. If you can’t make the event then we will deliver the kits to your child’s classroom for you before the

first day of school.

Please help support the newly formed PTA with our first fundraiser of the year. So skip the lines this summer. Order your supplies with Teacher Tailored! Ordering Information Below!

Simply place your order by June 19 th, 2022

Summer Reading

Summer reading is essential, and we want to encourage our students to read all summer. A great way to access books is through our public libraries.

The Garfield and Elroy Libraries (Del Valle Libraries) have wonderful literacy events prepared for our students and an amazing new selection of books for your child to check out and read! If you would like your student to receive a Del Valle Libraries library card from our school, please complete this form by May 26th, and our librarian, Ms. Amy, will get the library card to your child before the school year ends.

Our librarian, Ms. Amy, has compiled information about summer reading as well as how to access books over the summer. Check out her library website for more information!
