Back to School Information 2017


Supplies

Your child's teacher or division director has sent out information regarding supply lists. You may purchase supplies on your own or through ClassBundl, an optional online service. NGFS has partnered with ClassBundl for the 2017-18 school year to bring you simple back-to-school shopping. ClassBundl gives parents and families the option to order your supply list online in pre-bundled packages. Each purchase ships to your door and earns 5% cash back to the school. ClassBundl Supplies is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
