Local Schools Provide New Tools for Back-to-School Shopping

INLAND EMPIRE- Parents from local schools have a new tool in their back-to-school bag of tricks this year as all their school’s supply lists are now posted on TeacherLists.com.  

With just one or two clicks, parents can find their child’s exact supply list and then click right over to pre-filled shopping carts on Target, Walmart, Jet.com or Amazon to purchase their list and have it shipped right to their home.  Target and Walmart also offer in-store pick-up.  Super easy, super convenient.  

The site already includes lists for: Bloomington Christian Elementary School, Bloomington; Cajon High School, San Bernardino; Cooley Ranch Elementary, Colton; Dollahan Elementary School, Rialto; Excel Prep, San Bernardino; Grand Terrace High School, Grand Terrace; Lugonia Elementary School, Redlands; North Ridge Elementary, Moreno Valley; Packinghouse Christian Academy, Redlands; Palm Avenue Elementary School, San Bernardino; Reche Canyon Elementary School, Colton; Samuel W Simpson Elementary School, Rialto; Seneca Elementary, Moreno Valley; St Catherine Of Siena School, Rialto; and Valley Of Enchantment Elementary School, Crestline.

“For decades, the supply list process has been a frustration for parents,” points out TeacherLists President, John Driscoll.  “Where to find the lists?  When are they available?  Forgetting the list on the counter at home.  Hunting the isles for the specific items their teacher has requested.  All of those issues are solved with TeacherLists.”

More than 50,000 schools now have lists posted on TeacherLists.  Lists for more than 1 million classrooms are live on the site and include required and requested items as well as specific notes and clarifications from teachers and school staff. 

Complete details and all the lists are available at www.teacherlists.com/parents.
