  • Are they having an open house? We're getting our list Monday at the kindergarten open house. I'd find out about rules for the supplies (regular backpack, or mesh/clear one, stuff like that) before actually buying anything.
    When does school start?
    I've heard around here, she'll need crayons, color pencils, bottle of glue and glue sticks, so I got those things already. It's different for each school, even the ones in the same district.

  • Probably nothing more than a box of 24 crayons, a package of pencils, glue, scissors and a supply box. They will send you a supply list. Where I live, we are lucking enough to have our schools send lists to the stores that you can pick up while you are shopping!

  • The school will usually provide you with a school supply list. Sometimes your local grocery store or Target/WalMart will have the supply lists posted too. Good luck!

  • I think most school provide a list of the things they need, or like p.p said sometimes at Walmart they will have a list of the locals schools with their supply list for each grade.

  • Here's what my ds will need for K, it was on the website.

    1 box of 24 crayons
    4 glue sticks, large
    1 heavy duty pencil case (nylon/canvas)
    2 pencils, #2 lead
    1 pocket folder
    1 Fiskars scissors, blunt tip
    1 box of tissues (175 ct.)

    Not too bad. That was the generic K list for his school, and it said each individual teacher could request more, so we'll see if his does.
