School supply lists are posted on the school website. Are you interested in ordering school supplies online? Parent Britt Henriksson is once again leading the effort to streamline the ordering of school supplies through Mulee. Mulee has posted K-7th grade packages on its website. Select your package(s) and use code 5740 to order from Mulee (www.themulee.com). The deadline is July 15 with delivery to the school on August 19.
Please note that this is a convenience organized by a BSI parent and it is not a school or PTO fundraiser.

Amazon Shopping Rewards
Please remember to use BSI's full link when shopping on Amazon. BSI earns a percentage of each purchase made using the link at no cost to you. There are two referral rewards. We earn more money from our BSI tag (7%) in the URL but the addition of the Smile program last year gives us an additional .5%. If you only use Smile then BSI only earns .5% of the purchase. When shopping, select 'Brooklyn School of Inquiry' as your charity at http://smile.amazon.com one time. After that, always use the full link of http://smile.amazon.com/?tag=bp02-20 when adding items to the shopping cart and when placing an order. Amazon will look the same, but selecting BSI in the Smile program plus tag=bp02-20 in the link tells Amazon that the BSI PTO should get the referral reward. Thanks always to our Amazon cheerleader, parent Anatoly G.!
Remember, our earnings formula is Amazon Smile (.5%) + BSI tag bp02-20 (7%) = 7.5% - 7.5% of your total purchase goes to BSI, at no cost to you! Use the link or simply click below.
