Shop for school supplies, PE uniforms, the quarter-zip jacket, and other items. New school uniforms and accessories are carried by Flynn & O'Hara, whose locations and ordering procedures are available online at the links below. It is essential that the basic uniform, including polo shirts, sweaters, vests, pants and skorts, be those carried by Flynn & O'Hara. You may choose to purchase conforming socks, oxford shirts, shoes and other accessories elsewhere.
MBSDirect, also with a link below, is our NEW official supplier of books for nearly all of the school’s courses. There are an increasing number of used books available there.
PE Uniforms, as well as some supplies for team sports and logo gear, are available by mail order at the bookstore. As with your books, you must ensure the PE uniform is clearly marked with a permanent marker.
Some books and supplies are available at the Cardinal’s Nest. There will be a greatly expanded inventory of merchandise, as well as extended hours, during the coming school year.
A great source for school uniforms and used books is the PTO-sponsored book sale, usually held early in August. The Book Fair provides a service to students for selling their books and uniforms, benefits those who wish to purchase these books and uniforms, and enables the PTO to provide substantial support to the school. Most summer reading material will be available at the end of the school year, so that students can begin those assignments before the Book Fair in August.
