The school. Thankfully my son only needs six things this year for 3rd grade. Small schools rock

Parents. Budgets are tight across many districts. Supplying my kid with certain materials is MY job, not the districts.

student supplies - the parents

teachers supplies (special things wanted for lessons, not basic paper, ink, reading programs, etc) - teacher

teacher/school supplies (reading programs, anything required for the lessons, paper, ink, etc) - school.

I'm a teacher and I sujpply way too much.  I cut back last year and parents were pissed.  In March, a parent wanted me to get her child a new folder because he ripped his.  I folded a piece of construction paper in half and used that.  Parent wanted to know why I sent kid to bathroom to get toilet paper to blow his nose - because I'm tired of supplying 20 boxes a year (last year was a bad flu season, spring was bad on allergies, and everyone sends their kids to school sick so we go through a lot).

Parents, sadly teachers pay for quite a bit out of pocket here so parents that are able usually help with extras here too

I don't get parents who refuse to send Kleenex. Classes go through that like MAD. I too stop buying it.

Quoting disneymom2two:

Parents for student supplies including tissues, plastic baggies, and other items needed regularly for projects or other school related activities.

Teachers for anything extra they want above the basics (though honestly teachers in my area are underpaid so I typically give dd's teacher gift cards to WalMart throughout the year to help out).

School should provide paper, ink, and necessities for teachers like pens, markers for boards, etc.
