School Supply Kits for Fall 2013
Are Now Available
Good news! For the 4th year in a row, we are offering parents a bulk purchasing program whereby you can buy all of your child's requested school supplies on-line. Our vendor, Educational Products Inc., will deliver the ordered supplies to school before the start of the school year.
enter ID code PUB166.
Our teachers coordinated together on a grade-wide basis to create these supply lists. The list of items are available on the website (click on the picture). Please note that some of these items will be used exclusively by your child, while others like construction paper will be shared. Also note that teachers will ask you to provide the classroom with paper towels, ziploc bags and various other products that are not a part of this bulk order.
In addition, the PTA will be purchasing additional items to be shared across each grade level. A big thank you to the PTA for reducing the cost of these prepackaged kits.
The benefits of this program include the following:
Please note: This program is optional, and items can not be purchased "a la carte". This is a prepackaged order.
- A small percentage of all sales will be returned to PS166
- The costs are comparable to retail if not better
- On site delivery to student's desk
- No forms nor checks will be collected, all orders are processed online
Please be sure to place your orders
by the end of this month, May 31st.

The post, titled "P.S. 166 is a Green Elementary School", lauds the green initiatives at P.S. 166. In addition to offering details describing our various programs and achievements, author Karen O'Brien continues, "Under the leadership of the Green and Wellness Committee, and with the cooperation of teachers and custodial staff, P.S. 166 has implemented environmentally sustainable practices throughout the school. Each green program is an excellent opportunity to engage students, teachers, school staff and parents, learning about recycling, pollution prevention, climate change and sustainable living. Waste reduction and recycling programs at the school include composting food, and recycling bottle caps, electronics, and textiles."
