    Bulk Supply Purchasing

    The Alameda PTA is excited to continue bulk school supply purchasing at Alameda for the 2019-2020 school year! Bulk school supply purchasing differs from traditional school supply ordering in that instead of families ordering individual school supply kits or receiving lists of supplies to provide on the first day of school, every family will make a financial contribution and all monies collected will go into a fund to purchase communal supplies for every classroom.

    Last year, we fully transitioned to this model and had tiered pricing. This year, the Alameda PTA has worked with teachers to continue to reduce the number of items needed/find cost savings through bulk purchasing, allowing us to have one low amount for all grade levels. We request each family contribute the $45/student fee by July 15*, and the PTA will purchase all students’ supplies for each classroom.


    1. Pay by Check. Complete the order form sent home in backpacks and include this with your check which you may return to your student's teacher of the school office.

    2. Pay Online. Complete your payment online via MySchoolAnywhere.

    *Fees will increase $5/student after July 31.

    Financial Assistance

    If there are circumstances that create a hardship in paying the fee, the Alameda PTA will help cover costs for supplies for any families that could use financial assistance. Please choose the "Reduced Fee" school supplies product in the online store and enter the amount you feel comfortable paying; the PTA will cover the rest of the costs, even up to 100% where requested.
