December Marketplace Update: Classroom Shopping for the Holidays

It’s almost the new year, and we know that means many teachers are running low on school supplies. If you have holiday donations in your account, now is a great time to start classroom shopping before the holidays.

Please Note: Before ordering supplies be sure to check with your school to see if they can accept deliveries while your school is closed for winter break. If your school is unable to accept deliveries during winter break, we recommend waiting until after your school reopens to start classroom shopping to ensure you receive your materials.
