McKelvie School Supply Packs

For those families who did not purchase the PTG Supply Packs, please click the link below.  You will notice that there are 2 lists for each grade.  You will only need to purchase one.  If your child is enrolled in World Language, please use the list that is assigned to your child's grade and includes World Language.  If your child will not take World Language, use the list that simply lists the grade.

Please note that purchasing these supplies will take approximately 15-20 minutes if you elect to order online.  The advantage to this is ordering from your home, getting all items on the list, and having the supplies delivered to your home.  For questions, please contact the Main Office.
