What to buy for Kindergarten??

My son starts Kindergarten the first week in September... I was informed we wouldn't find out his schedule or any info until about a week or so before school starts.  A little annoying but there's nothing I can do about that.

I have NO idea what to expect he will need for school.  This is my oldest baby, so the first time I'm doing this lol :)  What are some things I should stock up on beforehand?  I want to start shopping now to get in on the good sales.  I'm sure by the time I get his info all the stores will already be in Christmas mode lol!

I'm planning on grabbing 

-backpack
-crayons
-folders
-pencils
-notebook

What am I missing? I can't imagine he will need a TON for Kindergarten, but would love some input from other moms who have been through this before.  I'm sure there's something I'm not thinking of :) Thanks mamas!!! <3

Oh and glue bottles and sticks.

Quoting ladyraven16:

Is it going to be communal supplies? Either way colored pencils, markers, scissors, eraser, Kleenex are some things that were on my sons last year.

Maybe markers and glue sticks, some Elmer's glue? I have seen basic supply lists at walmart and target before.

How old is he? My son is 3 and will be going to preschool/mother day out.


Quoting sarahbearamommy:

that's actually 1 thing he won't need.. PA still does 1/2 day kindergarten so he either eats lunch after AM kindergarten or before PM kindergarten.

And lunch box.

Do the kindergarten teachers have websites?  Ours did, and I could check the previous year's supply lists to get an idea of what they all requested.
