since pushing more academics earlier became the thing and art was sacrificed to test prep

I've never even gottena supply list in K or elementary school. We started egtting them in 5th grade.

The schools just have all that stuff. Then when they need it through the year they send home "wishlists".

Hmm...weird. My kids all needed that stuff for kindergarten. I'd be wondering what they'd be doing without art supplies.

My ds needed lots of that stuff for K so it must be by school.
