Store 44 FAQ
Who can "shop" in Store 44?
Items in Store 44 are available for students and their families
Where is Store 44?
There's one in each school building. In the high school, Store 44 is in the office by the school store. Ms. Baker's office is home to the Aber Store 44.
What's available in Store 44?
At this time we have school and household supplies. Through October 9, we're holding a winter gear drive and will make those items available asap. Eventually, we'd like to add clothes and other items.
Do the items cost anything?
Nope, everything in Store 44 is free.
How can I use Store 44?
Students can drop in to grab what they need. We just ask that they use our shopping form to help us manage our inventory (self-serve instructions are at the Colfax Store 44 and school staff will assist kids at the Aber Store 44). Parents can also use this link to request items, which can be sent home with kids or picked up.
Will the PTO see my request?
No, requests will only be seen as necessary by Dr. Gandhi, Ms. Hofmann, Mr. Potter, and Ms. Baker.
How can I support Store 44?
You can always donate money here. And right now you can help by donating to our winter gear drive. Donation boxes will be at the east door in Colfax and north door in Aber.
What if I need medicine or other items not in the store?
Due to safety regulations we are not allowed to keep items like medications or cleaning supplies in the schools. You may be able to find these items at one of the local food pantries. You can also reach out to Mr. Potter or Ms. Baker with specific requests and we will try to accommodate all those we can.
