Jacksonville Elementary School
2016-2017 JES SCHOOL SUPPLY KITS
We’ve received confirmation from SchoolKidz for our supply kit orders. All kits and other items will be in students’ homerooms by Jacksonville’s “Peek at your seat” on Mon., Aug. 22nd (2-4pm).
Reminder: SchoolKidz grade kits include all items on the JES supply list for each grade EXCEPT HEADPHONES. SchoolKidz offered headphones and earbuds separately from grade kits for families to choose as desired.
If you have any questions or issues, please contact Whitney Leber at WEPLeber@comcast.net. Also, if you believe you ordered but did not receive the 8/10/16 confirmation email from Whitney Leber, please let her know. Thank you!
The JES PTA is pleased to announce that we will again be offering the convenient, time-saving services of SchoolKidz Teacher Tailored® school supply kits for the 2016-2017 school year. (See these important links: SchoolKidz flier and 2016-2017 Supply List – All Grades.)
Supply kit orders will be accepted online only at: www.shopttkits.com
Use our account #: 86887
Orders will be accepted until: June 17, 2016
Important: SchoolKidz grade kits include all items on the JES list for each grade EXCEPT HEADPHONES, which JES requests that all students have. Headphones and earbuds are offered separately from grade kits at www.shopttkits.com for families to choose as desired.
This is a PTA service – not a fundraiser – the best prices are being shared directly with you. Detailed info on kit supplies (brands, etc.) can be viewed online. Each school supply kit will be mailed to Jacksonville in a prepackaged box and delivered directly to your child’s 2016-17 homeroom by the first day of school. Kits should arrive before the JES Peek-at-your-seat (Aug. 22nd) but are guaranteed by Aug. 24th.

SCHOOL SUPPLY DONATIONS:
This fall, the JES PTA Outreach Committee will collect school supply donations and new or gently used backpacks to benefit students in need at our sister school, Hawthorne Elementary in Essex, and at Jacksonville. If you have unused school supplies from THIS school year that you don’t need, these are welcome as Outreach donations this fall.
