Donate to Fund School Supplies
Posted 8/13/19

Please contribute to fund school supplies for our children!


May 2019

Dear Ralston Parents:


The last 5 years Ralston has been committed to providing each student with the materials needed to succeed in our programs.

To continue this commitment we are asking each family to donate $50 per child to a Ralston school supply account.

From that fund, we will provide each student with a 1 1⁄2” binder, pencil pouch, blue/red pen, pencil, eraser and glue stick at the beginning of the school year. Students will still use notebooks, journals, binders and so forth, the difference is that we will provide them for classroom use.

Here is why this is a win-win:

  • No trips to the local office supply store at the beginning of the year
  • Each teacher will have his or her unique classroom supply needs met
  • Each teacher will be provided a storage solution in the classroom for these supplies
  • Ralston will have access to school supply catalogs, allowing us to buy in bulk and at a significant discount
  • Students will no longer need to carry around all the materials they might need on any given day

I want to emphasize that this $50 is completely voluntary. We will not track who is and who isn’t donating. However, for this plan to function, we all need to be in it together.


Please be part of the solution. The contributions you provide will go toward supplying all Ralston students with their classroom supplies for the 2019-2020 school year.
