Clothing Assistance

Please let me know if your student is in need of clothing or school supplies.

The Clothing Bank

The APS Clothing Bank is available to help students in need of clothing. Students can request assistance up to two times a year and will receive socks, underwear, shoes and a voucher for some outfits. Please feel free to email or call me. I will need the following information when you get in touch:

Student's Name, Teacher's Name, Shoe size*, Sock and Underwear Size, and Coat size**.

*Shoes are difficult to obtain. Only include shoe size if your child is in real need. Also, state the reason for the need.

**Coats are not always available.
