School Start provides a needed service and does it very well.
Our School offered this service to our parents two years ago. They were very happy to see us continue the program
this year. As a secretary, I hope the school always offers this program which is voluntary.
It is a Win! Win! Win! Win! situation.
Homeroom teachers can pick the supply; item, colour, quantity and size necessary for the grade and
curriculum they teach. There is no waste. The school supplies arrive on time for the first day.
Parents do not have to shop and worry about buying the wrong item or finding out the store they are at does
not carry or has sold out of a popular item. Parents have the option to bring the order to school, or order
on line and have a chance of winning $750.00 worth of free gas.
It is just that simple and just that good!

Thanks for your help with this, and also for your assistance with setting up our supply lists in the Spring.
Your fast attention to mix-ups, etc. has been appreciated. We’re definitely using School Start again next year.

Thanks so much, these orders have been so seamless! Great job! We really enjoyed that we could have parents order online,
especially the ones that are new and wanted to order in September.

School Start was great this year. I haven’t heard any complaints about the quality or quantity of the items
included. The ordering process is fast and easy and you allow plenty of time for teachers to get their supply
list to your company. I’m sure we will be happy to use your services again next year.
Ecole St. Matthew, Calgary
Parents really appreciate having an option to pre-order their school supplies instead of battling all the
stores for the resources they will require for school. The products received arrive on time, are high
quality and are well organized for teacher distribution

Absolutely awesome! Smooth as anything! Teachers appreciate that the supplies are consistent in the classroom.
Ecole Marie - Anne Gaboury
We were very happy with the supply packages and deliveries. The green cloth bags were a real hit too as they
didn’t break. Parents liked being able to order online. We only had one issue with the pencils but discovered
that it was more of a sharpener issue. The Staedler rep fixed all that to our satisfaction.
Red Deer Lake School, Calgary
It was slick as a whistle. No problems at all. We were very happy!
Rendell Park School, Lloydminster
Everything went perfectly. Everything came on time, andthere were no problems
Westpark Middle School, Red Deer
We had no glitches or problems. I was very impressed with how organized everything came and when
I wrote to ask for lists, I had them in under 10 minutes I am sure. It was an excellent program.
We will for sure do it again next year. Thank you for the service. Hopefully, more parents will opt
in now that we know how slick it is. Parents liked the no hassle of buying the stuff.
