  • A back pack.

    that's all DS1 needed. The school pretty much supplied everything else.

  • Most stores having shopping lists for each of the different schools. If you have a Wal-Mart they will have one for sure. Should be coming out here at any time.

  • The school should supply a list for you. You might want to contact them and ask if you can pick one up, or check your local walmart, kmart, or target and they may have a rack with supply lists for your local schools..

  • They sent home a list of supplies he needed so look at your school's website to see if they have a suggested list. I'll try to remember: Pencils, 2 boxes of crayons, box for the pencils, scissors, glue sticks, one of those nap pads, a spiral notebook for his Spanish lessons,
    For clothing, ds's school does school standard attire, so 4 pairs of shorts (khaki, black navy), plenty of polo shirts, 4 pairs of pants, a couple long sleeve t's to go under the polos in the winter, socks, 2 pairs of shoes,

  • Backpack and lunch box. Teachers usually send home a supply list on the first day of school or mail it to you. Just wait till the teacher tells you. I went and bought unnecessary kinder items the teacher did not even want.
    Be Sure to Put a Sweat Note in the Lunch Bag!

  • Kleenex to help the teacher (so she can have them yet not have to buy them the entire year round)

  • we have to buy wipes, hand sanitizer, dry erase markers, and send $15 for the teacher to buy snacks... along with the typical crayons and pencils.
    they use towels at his school for naps... i think that's dumb.
    what's wrong with blankets?

  • I wish I could help, however I am in the same situation! My oldest is starting Kindergarden too this year and the school has not been in contact yet as far as supplies and open house possibilities? Makes me nervous that school is just about a month away, and this is the first impressions I am getting of the district. I even called and the secretary said "Oh, uhm...I don't know. Why don't you just watch your local paper or something for that info.?" whatever. Good Luck though! :)
