I went school supply shopping today for my 5th and 6th grader and the list made me mad. The basics are ok they both need pencils, red pens, notebooks, composition notebooks, and they both need a binder. This is what really makes me mad. 5th grade is in middle school and they have 7 different classes. My son has to take crayons and scissors and glue that the homeroom teacher will keep for everyone to use. She doesnt want just any glue she wants (glue All) Since im buying it why does it matter what kind? They both need clorox/lysol wipes again for the teachers to keep and why does it have to be clorox/lysol? why cant it be the cheaper brand? 2 boxes of kleenex a piece and a roll of paper towels a piece for the teachers. I know the students will be using this stuff sometimes but why the hell do I pay 300.00 school taxes every year. Why doesnt the school buy this stuff. I work my ass off working full time..CONT....Answer Question

Yeah, for my 3rd grader I have to find Lysol wipes that are unscented... they're going to get fresh scent because I have 4 kids and I don't have the time to drive all over the dang place looking for unscented ones (haven't found them anywhere yet). Also they want 12 oz elmer's glue. I found 4 oz and 7.5 oz but no 12 oz anywhere yet. So they're getting 7.5 oz... too bad, And then all the kleenex and paper towels... last year by the end of the school year they had barely gone through half of all that stuff they got from everyone. Why do they need so much? I know we didn't have to buy this much when I was in school. I started on the first day with a backpack and a lunchbox and some clothes. The school provided everything else.
