Please drop off your Community Supplies anytime from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM in the Griffin Center.
Aristoi Booster Club (ABC) is partnering with Upper School families to provide community supplies on an as-needed basis. Instead of purchasing community supplies for each of your Upper School students, merely pay the subscription fee and ABC provides the supplies where and when they are needed. This new, optional program saves you time and money and helps the school throughout the year. The Community Supplies are included at the bottom of each grade-specific school supply list.

*Student School Supplies are not included.

Please direct questions about this program to the Aristoi Booster Club at specialprojects@aristoiboosterclub.org.
