  • We usually find ours in our local stores. We either get them at Target or Walmart when we go to do our school shopping. I was noticing in Walmart the other day that they are out for our school district

  • Some schools send out school list and some do not. What I do is go to my local office max or staples and they will usually have the list of supplies that the kids need. The earliest these are available is usually the first week of August.

  • We got ours the last week of school for our older two. I'm assuming when we take our kindergartener's birth certificate and stuff over to the school they will give us hers. Also our local Walgreens has the lists there towards the end of summer. They do it for all the local schools. I plan to start shopping for school supplies soon because with 3 kids it is going to be expensive.

  • Also check with your local school districts web-page (if they have one)...often the school supply list are posted there.

    Mine sent it home with the kids in their report cards....New families the district get theirs when they register the kids for school...but then again those same families can get the list of the school district web-page if they didn't want to wait for them.

  • A lot of the stores have school supply lists for the local schools. I know Wal-mart has their supplies out already but I didn't see any lists yet.

  • We don't even know her class assignment until the end of August. They send a letter and list then. Each school is different. Can you call and see if anyone can help you in the school office or check out the school's website.

  • you can usually go to the schools web site and get the list. I do this every year rather then wait until one week before school starts when walmart gets the list....
