Have you heard?…

Great news – Avalon Public School has just signed up with the Best Tools for Schools program!  Just another school joining the revolution to change the way parents view back-to-school shopping.  Many thanks for your support!

We’re a hit!

Thanks to all of the parents who stopped to chat with us at the Capital Parent & Kids Show!  Let your teachers and principals know about our program – we would be happy to drop by and show them a sample kit.  As always, the show was full of fun and entertainment,..and to answer the question of the enthusiastic 5 year-old little boy with the red cheeks….No, it’s not possible to include a slice of pizza in your supply kit,…..but we’re working on it :)

Capital Parent Show

We’ll be at the Capital Parent Show this weekend at the Nepean Sportsplex.  Hope to see you there and we’ll let you know all about it on Monday.  Have a great weekend!  It looks like Spring is finally here.

Most of the time the e-mail we receive from our friends is quickly read and promptly put in the trash bin. We all just get so much mail, you can’t possibly keep it all.   Once in a while though, you get one that moves you.

We received this one today and loved it.  You may have seen it before but it’s worth watching again.  Enjoy and feel free to send us your comments.

Drumroll please…..

Welcome Heritage Public School.  We know you’re not thinking about school supplies yet. Only we’re crazy enough to be thinking about that.  We hope you take advantage of our great service and don’t give it more than five minutes of your time this year.  Enter your five digit code when it comes home in June and click purchase.  We’ll do the rest.  Come September you’ll have less grey hair, fewer wrinkles and a calm inner peace that will come from avoiding the madness of back to school shopping.  Enjoy your summer!

The first of many….

Best Tools for Schools is pleased that Forest Valley PS in Ottawa will be running our program at their school.  We look forward to knocking your socks off with great customer service and a terrific product.  We hope many of you take advantage of our program and relieve yourself of the often arduous task of shopping for school supplies.  Send us some pictures of what you did instead. :)  Thank you for your business.

Thank you, thank you very much…

Our website traffic was way up this morning so I went searching for the answer.  Looks like we’re getting attention for our great web design on and  We’ve now had visitors from 74 countries around the globe.  Now, if we could only figure out how to co-ordinate delivery to Italy. :)

Have a great March Break!

We’re around if you should have any questions.  We hope you and your families have a safe and wonderful March Break!
