I purchase most items

I am also able to purchase materials in bulk. I teach at a Parochial school and each student pays an additional supply fee with their tuition. I provide pencil boxes, pencils, glue sticks, erasers and crayons. I label all supplies with names and place them on the desks for the first day of school. This is especially helpful working in a very diverse class with many refugee and lower income families, giving everyone the same supplies. Student do bring clorox wipes, kleenex, ziploc bags, and a ream of card stock or paper on the first day. I enlist an adult volunteer to sit in the back of the room and collect these supplies throughout the morning by calling students up one at a time an checking off what supplies are brought. We then send reminders to parents about any forgotten supplies. Parents also have the option of dropping supplies off in the office the week before school starts.
