With the first day of school just six weeks away, parents and school district staff are already thinking about the basics of school instruction: paper, pencils and notebooks.
District officials are working to launch their annual school supply drive aimed at insuring all students have the materials they need.
Individually, school supplies may not seem costly. The price of crayons or a pack of notebook paper can be under $1, but those costs add up when parents are faced with a school supply list that’s a page or more long. Backpacks are a big, expense item and supplies like index cards and binders can quickly run up a bill at the store.
Want to know how to help? That’s easy. You can drop-off items to any Fort Mill school location listed here www.fort-mill.k12.sc.us
