Fourth Grade

Rising 4th Grade Supplies – Read Below!!

To buy your child’s school supplies for September 2019, ALL you have to do is go to our page on Donor’s Choose:

4th Grade Supply List

…and make a donation. That’s it! Once the project is funded, supplies will be delivered directly to the 4th-grade teachers at 261 for next school year. No more waiting in long lines, no more lugging giant bags into school. And the best part is because we buy supplies in bulk, it’s less expensive for you!

Please donate this spring or as soon as you can to ensure we can get the supplies over the summer.

The suggested donation is $60 per child. If you would like to donate more to sponsor another family, feel free to donate more money. Please donate what you can afford.

*Please note, even though the site is organized by Lindsey Sproul, this fundraiser is how you buy supplies for ALL UPCOMING 4th GRADERS.

*Also note that you can help this project get funded quicker by clicking that you want to donate 0% to DonorsChoose instead of 15%. (Part of the full donation amount already goes to DonorsChoose, so there is no need for 15% of your $$ to go to them specifically!) Just hit the ‘edit’ button next to where it says “Includes optional 15% donation to support DonorsChoose.”

 Have a great summer. We look forward to getting off to a smooth start in September!
