School Supply Update!
This year, the Clinton PTA is launching a brand-new initiative to provide ALL classrooms with school supplies for the school year! That's right, there will be no need to shop for supplies over the summer and bring in materials on the first day of school.
The goal is to buy all materials in bulk at discounted rates, which helps reduce the burden on families and teachers! The drive will also help provide paper goods and disposable items needed throughout the year.
This program is only possible with donations from Clinton families, which is critical for the success of the effort for this year and beyond. The suggested amount is $35 per child, but you are welcome to donate as much or as little as you are able.
School Supply Details
We have worked with our fabulous Clinton teachers to develop lists of what will be needed this year. The exact supplies provided will vary by grade, but will include supplies such as:
- Kid Scissors
- Glue Sticks
- Dry Erase Markers
- Post-It Notes
- Pencil Boxes
- Tissues and Wipes
- Headphones (grades 2 and up)
Sponsor A Class!
There is also an opportunity for families or businesses to sponsor a class or even an entire grade. With over 25 classes at Clinton, there is a lot of ground to cover!
$400- to sponsor 1/2 a class
$800- to sponsor a whole class
$3500- to sponsor a whole grade
All sponsors will be featured on our website. Stay tuned for more local business sponsor opportunities this year, including Clinton Student Theatre!
We are grateful to our first classroom sponsor, 5 Point Physical Therapy THANK YOU!
School Supplies for the 2023-2024 School Year
There will be no need to find a class supply list, shop over the summer, or bring in supplies on the first day of school.

This drive will also help provide a fund for paper goods, and disposable items needed throughout the year.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available:
$400-to sponsor 1/2 a class
$800-to sponsor a whole class
$3500-to sponsor a whole grade
