School Supplies
Do you really enjoy shopping for school supplies?  If not, we have a solution for you! FTC will hold its annual school supply kit sale for the 2017-2018 school year. These kits contain all the necessary school supplies for your child, and are often the same price or cheaper than if you purchased the items yourself. Be on the lookout for order forms coming home in May!
