Thank You Metro & Kaiser Permanente!

This year, our students are getting backpacks filled with school supplies through a generous donation from Metro.   Through Schoolhouse Supplies Tools for Schools Program, companies adopt a Portland Public School and provide each student a backpack full of supplies.

Some of the fine folks from Kaiser Permanente were at Schoolhouse Supplies this afternoon filling the backpacks with supplies.
