Buy supplies through PTA

As we did last year, in collaboration with TM staff, the PTA has pre-ordered classroom supplies, using bulk purchasing to reduce costs. Parents are asked to pay $40 per student (or what you are able) and all standard classroom supplies will be supplied.

Families still must supply backpacks, and may be asked by teachers for personal  items such as reusable water bottles.

Visit our School Supplies main page for basic information and to pay. Visit our FAQ page for further details.
