Supply Sale

Question: Can I pay for my PTA membership when completing the online presale?
Answer: Yes. Simply select a membership option in the "PTA Membership" section of the shopping cart and add your membership to your order. You will receive instant online access to the membership directory after you complete an order that includes a PTA membership.

Question: If I forgot something in my initial order or decide I want to purchase additional spirit wear items, may I complete the "Supply Sale Online Pre-Sale" again?
Answer: Yes. You can complete the process as many times as you like. Just make sure you do NOT add items already purchased to subsequent orders.

Question: Do I have the option to purchase spirit wear at the supply sale event in August?
Answer: The only items for sale at the event in August will be extra inventory we have in stock, and it will be available for purchase on a first come, first serve basis. If you do not use the online presale, we cannot guarantee that the shirt style and/or size will be available at the event.

Question: What if I am out of town and unable to attend the supply sale event in August. Should I still use the online presale?
Answer: Yes. Since the supply sale event coincides with our annual "Meet the Teacher" night, it is strongly recommended that all parents/guardians attend the supply sale with their children. However, if you have completed the online presale and are unable to pick up your order at the event, we will contact you with additional options for picking up your order.

Question: Do I have to purchase the required supplies through the NHE supply sale?
Answer: No. You may purchase supplies on your own.
