Maximize your remaining budget by investing in summer camps.

Finalize Summer Fun

Maximize budget by refilling and restocking on all school supplies.

Reset, Refill, Restock

Back-to-school season will be here before you know it. Instead of the usual last-minute scramble, take a proactive approach and start ordering what you need now. This is the perfect time to check out your inventory and see what essential supplies you might need for the upcoming school year.

Maximize your remaining budget by investing in your own professional development.

Invest in Your Profession

Take this opportunity to enhance your skills, broaden your knowledge, and support upcoming school initiatives with our engaging professional development and e-learning courses. You won’t believe the success stories that we’ve gotten! Whether you’re looking to deepen your understanding of STEM subjects, learn new teaching strategies, or simply stay updated with the latest trends, we’ve got you covered.

Hey everyone! Interning at Pitsco and helping with various marketing efforts while continuing to work on a MBA keeps me busy. I graduated in May 2023 with a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing from Pittsburg State University, and I’m super excited to learn as much as possible during my stay with Pitsco! In my down time, you can find me being entertained by my little doodle – Birdie – hanging with friends, and basically doing all the outdoors things! And yes, before you ask, I’m enjoying as much free time as I can while getting adapted into the “real world”.
