Back to School Supply Ordering

Great News! This year we will again be offering the SchoolKidz supply kit program which offers pre-packaged, school supply boxes filled with the exact custom items requested by your child’s teacher. Why fight the hassle of retail when there's a cost effective and convenient way of purchasing your back-to-school supplies?

NEW THIS YEAR: The back-to-school fees are included in the price of the kits! This includes: $15 for classroom party fund, $1.55 for red home folder, & $4.35 for an agenda (grades 3-5).  The only additional items your child will need are headphones, backpack, and water bottle.  Kits will be picked up at Meet the Teacher night before school starts.  

Simply place your order by June 19th

Order online at: www.shopttkits.com

Enter ISLA’s school account number: 28056

Questions? Email ptofundraising@isla.school

**This program is voluntary, you may still choose to purchase school supplies on your own.


Letter from the PTO

Please view the full letter here. For an overview on things to come from the PTO in the ‘24-’25 school year!

Red Folder Recyclables–

Have a stash of red folders from past years or done using yours from this year? The PTO will be collecting good condition red folders to be used as back-ups for future years! Please utilize the bin in the front entryway of the school for collecting these.

Spirit Store–

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us at the End of Year party last weekend. The Spirit Store will reopen for online orders in mid July– Notification & link will come via email from the school. Orders will be set to be delivered at Meet the Teacher at the end of August! More details to come. Have a great summer, ISLA!

**NEW** LA Updates

We have 6 confirmed Language Ambassadors for the 2024-2025 school year and are still trying to finalize 7 more to join the school next year. But if we don’t have host families for the Fall semester (mid/end of August – early February) for those remaining 7 LAs, we would have to turn them away. The LA Team aims to have all interested parties submit the Google Form!  by 6/14 allowing the last two weeks of June to match & pair families!!

Please know that filling out this form does NOT mean you are required to host, be a tio or provide any support at all.

It simply is a way to start the conversation and learn more about this amazing program. See this quick infographic that helps show how the LA Team will work with you IF you decide you’d like to participate!

All questions can be directed to MK at islaLAprogram@gmail.com or by texting 612-867-9412.
