Tools for School

If you’re a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies, we can help. EIPS has once again partnered with the United Way for the annual Tools for School campaign. Tools for School in EIPS provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in kindergarten to Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. When classes resume, the backpacks are respectfully distributed to students who’ve ordered them. 
     Submit an order

The Division is also accepting donations for the campaign. If you have the means to do so, why not pick up a few extra supplies when you’re back-to-school shopping. Donations can be dropped off at EIPS Central Services.
     683 Wye Rd., Sherwood Park
     Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Still have questions about school startup?
