It’s hard to believe it is already November! With the school year in full swing, parent teacher conferences complete and report cards around the corner, teachers are keeping busy. We know it can be a challenge to make it to The Free Store during the work week. That’s why our popular Saturday Shopping Event, sponsored by Pemco Insurance, is back!
We invite teachers to come in to stock up on classroom essentials, find special touches for their room, art supplies for class projects and more on Saturday, November 21st!
Please keep in mind that space is limited to Portland Public School teachers. If you are a teacher at one our PPS schools and interested in shopping on Saturday, November 21 please RSVP via our EVENT page. You will need a valid PPS email for registration.
Teachers can always plan their next trip to the Free Store by taking look at our shopping calendar to see upcoming shopping dates.
Hint: For those new to the Free Store, take a moment to refer to our handy dandy shopping tips to make the most out of your shopping experience.
Have supplies sitting around and collecting dust? See if they’re something our teachers need! Thank you for keeping us in mind and all of your support!
