PTA School Supply Kit Ordering (OPTIONAL) for incoming 2021-22 Grade 3 Shabonee Students

Attention Incoming 3rd Grade Parents! We are excited to welcome you and your child to Shabonee in the fall! As a convenience to you, Shabonee PTA organizes school supply kits that you can order online and have delivered to your child’s classroom instead of heading to the store and purchasing supplies on your own. A great time and money saver!

To submit your order, go to, and enter School ID SHA082. The deadline to order is June 6th! 

HERE is an additional video outlining information about EPI, our school supplies vendor, and the overall process.

For any questions, please contact Apryl Schlueter at Enjoy your final weeks of being a Hickory Point Bulldog!

Library news(final posting)

The last week for circulating library books for this school year will be May 10-14th and all library books are due back to school by Friday, May 21st. Reminder notices have been sent home for students who have overdue library books from earlier this year. Library books for the summer will be distributed during the week of May 24th-28th, to be kept at home until school starts in the fall (2nd graders will be able to return their books to Shabonee). Thank you for your help maintaining our c0llection!


  • We respectfully ask parents who park in the South parking lot for dismissal to use the designated parking spots only. Also, please do not back up out of the parking lot and be respectful of the cars parked near you. You are only allowed to park in the handicapped spot if you have a handicapped placard. Thank you.

  • Just a quick reminder, if you change your child’s dismissal plan, please let the office know.
