I hope you have had a wonderful summer! I am excited to update all of you on our pilot school supply program that we have developed in collaboration with Austin Creative Reuse and our PTA. Thanks to the generous work of both of these partners, the only school supplies our families will need to provide is a backpack for their Roadrunner and a zipper binder if their Roadrunner is in grades 3rd through 6th. All other supplies will be provided by Austin Creative Reuse or purchased in bulk as needed through the school year. I
f you have already purchased school supplies, there is no need to cancel your order or return them, and you are welcome to purchase any specific items that your student prefers. This pilot program is part of our overall efforts to streamline and simplify things for our school community while setting a positive environmental example for our Roadrunners.
