SchoolCash Online is our preferred method of payment

Gloucester County Public Schools is striving to improve safety and reduce risk wherever possible. One safety measure is minimizing cash and check payments at our schools. To accomplish this, we use SchoolCash Online for all school items and activity fees. If you haven't already created a free account, we encourage all parents to register, so you'll be ready to make online payments from home: both now and in the future as more school items become available again.

Benefits to parents and schooLs

You will help increase efficiency and security at your school by making payments directly into your school's bank account. This limits the number of people entering the school, reduces risk of lost payments, and allows teachers and office staff to focus on helping students and not counting cash. In addition, you are automatically informed about school activities!

Community Shout-Outs
We live and learn in an amazing and generous community. Local churches, individuals, and businesses both large and small have reached out with school supplies, food for our teachers and staff, and some special treats. We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and say thank you! We appreciate all that you do for Achilles Elementary School.
The congregation of Bethlehem U.M.C. was extremely generous in donating school supplies to the students of Achilles. Click here to see just a little bit of what they donated. And here to see a little more. Lots of composition books, pencil boxes, cleaning wipes, tissues, baggies, pencils, crayons, colored pencils... you  name it!! 
We appreciate the support
Bayport's donation was designated for a staff breakfast on their first day back, August 19. Our teachers always enjoy this event. 
Thank you to Bayport!
