They want me to bring multiples of each item. Like 4 boxes of crayons and 4 boxes of markers and they want me to bring copy paper and 5 folders and 4 compostition note books... What for? What do the need all these folders and notebooks for? And why does my child need 4 boxes of crayons? I don't have the money to buy all of this stuff if they don't really need it. can I just send one and have them tell me when her supplies get low or need replaced?
