Time to Order School Supplies for Next Year! (For rising 1st-5th graders)

You have 3 weeks to order grade-specific, ATS school supplies for the fall that are being sold through a new vendor this year, EPI. Pre-ordered kits will be placed on your child’s desk on the first day of school, but orders must be placed by Friday, June 8.

1. Go to https://www.educationalproducts.com/ShopPacks/
2. Enter the ATS school account number ATS001 in the search box.
3. Choose the appropriate grade level kit (i.e., the grade your child will be in this fall).
4. Enter your child's first and last name.
5. Add to cart, confirm your order and checkout. You do not need to sign in or create an account when checking out, you can just enter your email address only.
6. Input billing name and address information.
7. Enter secure payment information.1.
8. Complete order.

Although online ordering is strongly encouraged, we understand that some parents may prefer to pay by check. If so, please complete the order form that will be included in this week's Friday Folder and return it to “ATS PTA/School Supplies” (checks should be made payable to the “ATS PTA”) by Friday, June 8.

If you would prefer not to use the EPI program, please use the grade-specific list included on the order form as your child’s school supply list when shopping for back to school items. If you would like to assist with defraying the cost of a school supply kit for an ATS student who could not otherwise afford to purchase one, please send your contribution in a separate check made payable to the ATS PTA. Please mark “contribution” in the memo portion of your check.

This is a service from the ATS PTA, not a fundraiser, and is entirely voluntary. $5 per order has been added to cover the cost of an agenda. Please know that by buying supplies in bulk, EPI offers a discount on these supplies that, if bought separately, usually are more expensive.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Maura McKinley ... See more
