  • School Supplies for the 2-17-2018 School Year

    School wide, we are moving away from itemized school supply lists. Instead, we are asking families to contribute a flat rate to the school for us to purchase all of our needed school supplies. The school can purchase items at our district corporate rate, in bulk, getting exactly what we need—this will allow us to save money and eliminate a lot of waste.

    ALL STUDENTS (K-5):
    We are asking that each family contribute $50 per student to Lewis School by check or cash. To pay with a credit card, go to our SchoolPay website: https://www.pps.net/Page/3528.  The link is also on the left side bar of this website.  When paying on SchoolPay, please be sure to pay for your school supplies and the kinder canvas bags with the item titled Office: School Supplies, NOT the individual teacher.  Thank you!

    STUDENTS ENTERING KINDERGARTEN:
    In addition to the $50 flat rate contribution, every kindergarten student should bring the following with them on the first day of school (September 5th):
    headphones (not earbuds) in a Ziploc bag with child’s name on the bag
    $10 for a canvas bag (please do not buy a backpack).
    **If paying by check, please write one check for the combined total of $60. 

    STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES 1-5:
    In addition to the $50 flat rate contribution, every 1st-5th grade student should bring the following with them on the first day of school (August 30th):
    backpack (one big enough to hold a coat)
    headphones (not earbuds) in a Ziploc bag with child’s name on the bag

    If any of the above presents a financial hardship for your family, please let Tracy in the School Office know. We are happy to work with your family to ensure that your child will have everything s/he needs to start the year.

    Please contact the School Office at 503-916-6360 or email Tracy at tgiordano@pps.net if you have any questions.
    Thank you!
