  • Art Supplies for the 2020_2021 School Year

    Students will not be allowed to share supplies during the 2020-2021 school year.

    Parents may purchase the art kits from the Bush Art Dept. at a discount or choose to purchase the supplies on their own.

    In partnership with School Specialty, NEISD Art Teachers are able to package needed art supplies for our students. By purchasing the "Art Kit" you can ensure that your child has the tools needed for success; they are offering their brand at a bulk discounted price. 

    Currently the district is only accepting online payments.  The link for online payments is in the process of being set up.  As soon as I have that info I will let you know.
