Tools for School is a program that provides students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 with a new backpack and basic supplies so that students are able to start the school year on equal footing with their peers. Alternatively, they can provide a new chromebook in lieu of traditional supplies. FCSS also provides new school shoes for students through the Shoes for School program.
