The Student Store is located between the C and D-pod. We keep all items on a rolling shelf that we bring into the hallway, across from the water fountain, just outside the doors to the D-pod. We are open on Wednesdays during lunch (or “big”) recess from 11:25-2:30pm.
We carry mostly fun school supplies like erasers, pencils, pencil sharpeners, and folders—all sold at wholesale prices to our students. We try to keep everything $1 or less, and many items are less than 50 cents. Please don’t allow your student to bring bills larger than $5—we cannot accept any bills larger than that amount.
When you volunteer at the Student Store, you help kids with their real world math skills. Some students need assistance to add up their selected item prices and help to make change. You may need to steer the student in the direction of items that fit their particular budget. Only very simple math skills are needed (and we’ve got calculators too…don’t worry! J) The kids really look forward to coming to the store so you get instant gratification for helping out! Since we must have two adults running the store at all times, it’s also a great opportunity to meet other moms and dads!
Volunteers work one of 2 shifts on Wednesdays, either from 11:25am-1:10pm or 1:30-2:45pm. Please consider donating some time once a month, once a week, or once in a while! We would love to have you join our team.
