  • Notebooks, folders, binders
  • Art & craft supplies
  • Storage and organizatin
  • Disinfecting wipes

In order to qualify for the savings, teachers must register before hand to receive a one-time promo code and coupon.  Click here to provide your name, email address, school, and school zip code.  (Be aware that the webpage won't be "live" until July 15).

The Teacher Prep Event would provide much-needed assistance to educators as they get their classrooms ready for students this fall.  Often, teachers must purchase necessary school and classroom supplies out of their own pocket.
