School Supplies – how to purchase

Hello Braefoot Families:

You will see the school supply list(s) for your child(ren) for next school year on the website.

You have a choice in how you purchase school supplies. You may either:

  • Purchase the items on the school supply list yourself OR
  • Purchase via the Monk Office Supply website, which is a fundraiser for our PAC – see below for further information.

You will notice that the online Monk Website supply list is almost identical to the one we have included. Monk could not supply us with all of the specified items, but we have tried to find a match which is as close as possible.

Monk Office Fundraiser – School Supplies OnLine

Hello Braefoot Families,

This coming school year, the PAC has signed up with Monk Office Supplies for parents/guardians to place orders for their children’s school supplies on-line.  This is an extra option for you and not mandatory. The PAC earns a 10% rebate on all orders up to July 19th, 2019.  If you miss this deadline, no worries, you are still able to order and enjoy this convenience of ordering from home, but the order will not be included in the rebate that PAC will receive.   If this is the case, you are able to choose your desired delivery option, ie: home, delivered to Richmond Elementary school or pick up from your desired Monk Office store location. This will be offered on-line for you to choose, but will have a small delivery charge.  No charge for having delivered to school.

If you require any further supplies, there will be an option to purchase items from their store website by clicking on the provided link while placing your order.

School supplies placed before the July 19th deadline (plus orders after deadline date who have specified delivery to the school) will be delivered to the school on September 3rd.   The PAC will be checking supplies for each order to ensure accuracy. Once we have checked the orders, supplies will be sent home with your child so that you can label what needs to be labeled.  We will try and get this done as quickly as possible. There are some items not to be labelled, so please check the school supply lists for those particular items.

A letter from Monk Office “Let’s Get “PAC” to school” is below for their website link and access code for our school.  It is an easy 3 step process.

Please note, this is a PAC Fundraiser!   Any questions or concerns should be directed to: braefootschool@gmail.com.  Please do not contact the school.  School staff will be extremely busy setting up at our new school location.   Thanks!

Sincerely,

Donna Stark, PAC Chair & PAC Team, Braefoot Elementary School Parent Advisory Council


Let’s Get “PAC” to school

We are thrilled Braefoot Elementary has chosen Monk Office, a proudly island-grown and family-operated business for over 65 years, as your school supply partner. At Monk, we strongly believe in investing in our Island communities with a particular passion for education. Going beyond fundraisers – we contribute to scholarships, donate product to schools, volunteer with Junior Achievement, and sponsor physical literacy programs by PISE.

Through “Let Us PAC For You”, Monk provides school supplies at better than retail price and donates 10% of online sales of school supply kits back to participating schools! The program offers PACs a stress-free fundraising opportunity while providing families with convenience, competitive pricing, and feel-good shopping.

SHOP EARLY TO FUNDRAISE

To make your life easier, your PAC has pre-built kits containing all required items on your child’s supply lists. No need to stress about finding a “½ interlined ½ plain notebook” – if it’s on the list, it’s in the kit! It’s important to remember that the items listed as optional are still required. The reason behind the optional items is to comply with School District #61 guidelines.

3 STEP ORDERING

1. Visit bts.monk.ca and enter your PAC Code: 385D5E on the SHOP page

2. Add your child’s kit (and optional items, if desired) to your cart

3. During checkout, pay with Visa or MasterCard and choose free school delivery (scheduled by your school for June or September) or free in-store pickup

We’re excited for the year ahead at Braefoot Elementary School!

Thank you for shopping online with Monk Office for your back to school and office needs!
