  • Where o0n your website do I find the school supplies needed by a 4th grader for Westwood Elemenary School?

    As you should know HyVee is offering a backpack full of school supplies for $4.99. I would like to purchase one for my grandson but I would like to know if he is even going to be able to use the supplies in the Westwood Elementary class room.

    Thank you very much.
