My son is starting kindergarten in a couple of weeks and today i got a list from the school telling me what i need to get for supplies. Which I thought was nice. It had on the basics backpack, lunch bag, crayons, pencils, one box of tissues and one bottle of hand sanitizer. What i found odd was that at the bottom of the list it said that the crayons, pencils, tissues and hand sanitizer were all going to be collected by the teacher on the first day of class and then handed out through out the year to all of the children. So I was wondering if any other schools have the parents buy supplies that are used by the whole class or not.Answer Question

Yes, many people think they are having to supply other kids, but it's not true. The reason why schools do this is that way the teacher is not having to write notes to Johnny's mom that he needs more pencils or that Mary's mom needs to send in more crayons. It cuts down on a lot of time wasters.
