Help the PTA and Order Your School Supplies Online for 2016-2017!

Order Your School Supplies for Next Year

Dear Mathews community,

We have finalized the school supplies list for 2016-17, and are again able to offer you online purchasing of supplies packs through Educational

How it works: Log on to with our school ID MAT050 and you will find your school supply list available per grade. (Please note that this is online ordering only.)

What you get: Hassle-free school supplies shopping in a click or two from home. The individual packs will be delivered at school right before school starts, during Sneak a Peek in August! 

What Mathews gets: Your purchase price includes a $5 donation to Mathews PTA to help support our school. This program is increasingly successful each year!

A few tips: 

  • Remember to order for the grade your child will be attending next school year. 
  • Online ordering is available until June 26th. No late ordering is available. Mark your calendars!
  • No extra packs will be ordered for sale in the Fall. Order now, or forever hold your peace!
  • If you are interested in donating an extra pack (or packs) in specific grade levels, you may also do so online with your order. (Enter “Donate” as the child’s name.)
  • School supplies will be shipped to the school and will be available for pick up at Sneak-a-Peek in August, the week before school starts.

Feel free to email me at with questions!

Thank you all!
