Context on School Supply Company

Here's a quick background on why I like 1st Day over the many other supply kit makers. As our Board will tell you, this is a very competitive industry, but only 1st Day is hiring individuals with disabilities as a part of their mission. That is near and dear to my heart. Here's the blurb they prepared about that commitment:

Before the weekend arrives, don’t forget to take just a minute and order your child’s back to school supply kit from 1st Day School Supplies! With... just a few clicks of your mouse, you can be done with next year’s back to school shopping before your summer officially begins! 
 
Have you ever wondered just who is making your child’s kit? 1st Day School Supplies is a family owned company taking great pride in not only the products and service they provide, but hiring a very special group of associates! We’d love to share a little bit about the 1st Day School Supplies team with you right now! The team is made up of a who's who of college students. Some of them will go on to become doctors, lawyers, accountants, entrepreneurs and engineers. They are involved in a range of activities including sports, music, and community service.

Associates have achieved many great accomplishments including: pitching a perfect game and winning two Division I national titles in wrestling as well as a NAIA championship team member in basketball. Among our associates we have a national qualifier and an All-American, debate champions, multi-state wrestling titles, and even a rifle state champion. On top of that academically we have one associate who scored a perfect 36 on his ACT. Six of our summer associates are carrying a perfect 4.0.

Working alongside the team of college students is a team of individuals with disabilities. Team members with disabilities help breakdown and prepare supplies that will be kitted. This incredible group of dedicated people are the best in the world at what they do! Many of them compete in Special Olympics. This year, several of our associates played on the state championship softball team and one of the associates placed 2nd in the state in Bocce Ball, while several others competed in volleyball, softball and power lifting!    

Now we’ve given you a little glimpse of the heart and soul of 1st Day School Supplies! So, what are you waiting for? Click the link below and order your kit now!!!

Get next year's supplies delivered in the Fall!

Theme: Shop On-Line Not In-Line for School Supplies
Back to school shopping for next year right now… Are you kidding me?  Let me remind you of the chaos that comes with last minute back to school shopping in the summer. Why not shop on-line with 1st Day School Supplies versus in-line at Wal-Mart, Target or Staples. In just a few clicks, you will get the exact supplies your teacher requested without the hassle and aggravation that comes with shopping last minute at big box retailers.

Kona Ice Friday after school = Good stuff at lost and found!

****
Attention parents: Last call for Lost & Found!
 
While your children enjoy Kona Ice on Friday afternoon after school, please make sure to visit the PTA's Lost & Found table in front of the school from 3:30-4:15.
 
This is the last time we will have the items on display before they are donated to charity. There are plenty of North Face, Under Armour, Nike and many other brands of sweatshirts, gloves, hats and coats that need to find their way home!
****

Thanks!

It's been another amazing year at RFES, with many, many people working together to create an environment rich with educational experiences for our community children!  Our final PTA meeting, tomorrow, is a great opportunity to share your thoughts about how the year went, where you want to see us go, and to hear about what's coming down the road for the 2017-2018 school year.
