From the Office
If you shop at Office Depot/Office Max, give them Eckstein’s school code – 70107353. Eckstein gets money back every quarter. The Main Office uses this as their ‘supply’ money so we don’t have to use other school money. The checks have ranged from $12 to over $700.00 at times. It is an easy way to give back to the school!
