School Supplies

Hello Glacier Hills Families!

The end of the school year is fast approaching, but planning for the 2016-17 school year has already started! Last year many families ordered school supplies through the vendor approved by the Site Council/Booster Club. This year the Site Council/Booster Club has contracted through “School Tool Box” to work with us for school supplies for the 2016-17 school year.

Below are the prices for supplies for each grade level. Prices do not include the headphones and flash drive, but those two items are listed as Optional Items on the order form. The school planner for grades 2-5 and art journals for grades K-5 can be purchased at school during the assessment days and open house. The only item not available for purchase is the student backpack.

Listed below are the prices for headphones and flash drives which are listed as Optional Items on the order form.

The supplies will come in a kit with the student name and grade. The kits will be shipped to school in August prior to the assessment days and placed in your child’s classroom.

To make your shopping convenient online, we are enclosing a sheet with steps to online shopping at School Tool Box (www.schooltoolbox.com) in your child’s Friday folder. We have also added a link on the Glacier Hills Website.

Thanks and Regards,

treeWe are thrilled to be bringing back our Community Cultural Event for its third year. What a great opportunity to be united by pride in our Glacier Hills school family and to celebrate all the richness and benefits we gain from being such a diverse community. Every family in our school community has something to share, from culinary to craft, art, music, dance, or storytelling. What traditions do you and your family enjoy? We are looking for Glacier Hills families to participate and share your culture and traditions with our school community. Whether it be dance, song, crafts, storytelling and language, or food: this is our chance to encounter one another in celebration of what makes our school community so vibrant. From biryani to lefse, quesadillas to kugel, banh mi to bi bim bap, or even grandma’s hot dish, it all has a place in our event. Start thinking NOW about how you can participate.
