Prices are competitive, and there is no shipping fee for combined orders to one household over $50. In addition, for each kit sold, School Tool Box will donate a meal to Feed My Starving Children. If you would prefer to do your own shopping locally, click here for a shopping list for each grade.

Used Uniform Sale  
Stop by the gym to check out the   used   uniform  sale during Orientation. Prices range from $3-$5 for all   uniform  pieces, except blazers which are $15. 
  • Large Blazer selection with UPDATED patch (new last year).  
  • Hundreds of navy or green polos available.
  • Large selection of plaid Jumpers & Skirts, we've spent the off season repairing dozens just for your daughters!
  • Did you know we have extended sizes? Plaid skirts & jumpers are available up to size 16. Navy pants/shorts are available in men's sizes.
  • The only thing we lack is navy pants for size 4-7, those knees just don't hold up on those active little boys.
Remember, you can bring in outgrown, gently worn (no holes or stains) uniforms to exchange for new sizes or pieces too.
If your student is entering 4th grade or higher, they can join the band! If you missed the instrument trials this week, email Mr. Jensen at jeffjensenmusic@msn.com. No prior music experience is necessary to participate.
