Parents Ordering School Supplies


How do I place an order for my child’s school supply kit? 

Parents can easily order school supply kits online by entering their School Code or using our Sprout School Locator. Then search for the correct grade level(s) and appropriate variants (last name or teacher-specific kits), if applicable. Remember, you’re ordering kits for next season – so be sure to select the correct grade level. Simply select the desired kit for your student, enter their information to ensure smooth delivery, and proceed to checkout.  


Where can I find my School Code?

You can easily find your School Code in any communications sent from the school or by using the Sprout School Locator to find your school.  


Where will my child’s school supply kit be delivered? 

Sprout delivers supply kits in advance of the day of classes on a date selected by the administration, but all communication about distribution will come from the school administration or parent organization.


When is my child’s order deadline?

Please refer to one of your communications from school (flyer, email or social media) about your order deadline for 2023. We encourage you to order early to take advantage of our chance to win a FREE supply kit.

Just for Schools and Parent Organizations


How does the Sprout School Supplies program work?

Sprout partners with schools across the United States to provide an easy back-to-school supply shopping option for busy families that saves parents time and money! Parent organizations typically partner directly with us to set up their school in the Fall or Spring for the upcoming school year.
