Today marks the start of school supply kit sales for 2019-2020! 

This year we chose to go with Shane's kits. They offer personalized kits in a cardboard box, that come with labels with your child's name in them (already inside the box).

Some older grade kits we have offered as additional items which ARE required, but which you may have on hand from previous scissors, headphones, or a clip board, so you don't have to add them if you don't need them. It is our way of trying to lessen the supplies around your home while saving you money! 

The kits will come color-coded per grade so you'll be able to narrow down what pile/stack to find your child's name/kit from across the room! Kits will be available for pick-up the week before school, times to be announced. 

We are excited to switch to this company which has a great reputation for quality products and customer service. 

We hope to reduce the paper trail, so please order online if you can:

School code AV89

Arbor View is hosting a Restaurant Night all day Tuesday May 7th at the Oberweis/This Burger Joint/Woodgrain Pizza in Glen Ellyn.  This fundraiser will work a little differently…the restaurant uses a company called GroupRaise and they as that you RSVP using the provided link below.  Even if you think you may go all you have to do is RSVP so they can get an idea of how many people they will be serving that night.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

This fundraiser will give our school 20% of the proceeds earned that night.  You can dine in or use the drive thru…just mention our school’s name.
