Pre-order 2017-18 school supplies!

You can now order a school-supply kit for your Zilker Panther. We’ve worked with the teachers to approve the lists. All you have to do is order online and then pick up your kits on Fri, Aug 18th.
  • The pricing is great and we make a tiny profit, enough to buy kits for economically disadvantaged kids.
  • And, we’re offering Special Ed kits for sale, which you can purchase and donate. Our Special Ed teachers need supplies, too, though they don’t have a home-room class to provide those supplies.
Go to and enter 13655 for the acct#. Or, go to for a link to the online store. 

Deadline to order: June 16th
Pickup date: Friday, Aug 18th, at Meet the Teacher
