Attention- Change in Process for Schoool Supplies

Dear STRIDE Families,

As you know, historically STRIDE has collectively purchased and distributed school supplies. However, due to the difficulties in accounting for funds in compliance with Minnesota Law, the STRIDE school supply program will reluctantly be suspended for the upcoming school year. We will be forming a committee to research and look at the possiblity to develop a new school supplies program that will continue in the spirit of our previous program while keeping the school compliant with Minnesota state law.

What does this mean for STRIDE families? Parents will be responsible for purchasing school supplies for their children. In order to assist parents with this process, STRIDE will provide specific grade level supply lists, which will be a local department stores: Walmart, Target, Office Max and Office Depot by July 21, 2014.

STRIDE continues to be focused on helping families. If there are families who would like to DONATE to our school supplies fund in order to offset costs for families in need, please submit monetary donations to Mandy at the North Campus, or Julie at the South Campus. Please nake checks payable to STRIDE Academy and mark "Donation for school supplies" in the memo.

Please look to the website for future updates. If you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to Brett Fechner.

Thank You, Brett Fechner
