School Supplies for New Year 2017-2018

Kent Elementary school is working with Staples Chilliwack to provide a more convenient solution to school supply shopping.  There is a deadline of JULY 1st, 2017 to do this (online and at the Chilliwack Staples store).  With this option you can pre-order your child’s school supplies for next year.  Supplies can be ordered online, in-store or by dropping payment off at Kent school.  All orders will be delivered to our school at the end of August in a reusable bag with the student’s name on it.  If you have any questions contact Kim at the school office or Shelley Howe at Staples (shelley.howe@staples.com).
