The Wayside PTA worked with Wayside teachers to create boxes of school supplies including everything your child will need to start the next grade.
Go to www.schooltoolbox.com and search for Wayside.
With just a few clicks, you can order a box that will be delivered directly to Wayside and ready for your child on the first day of school. And with every box you buy, a small amount gets donated to the Wayside PTA to support all the fun activities we are planning for next year. It’s a win for everyone!
