For all those moms who complained about school supply lists and refuse to buy things.
At the end of October my boys had conferences. Each of their teachers had a wish list outside of their classroom. My youngest it was the normal single gloves(they use these for kids that don't have gloves in the winter, especially later in the winter when many only have one glove) , supplies for projects that were coming up and stuff like that. My oldest the list were things that were requested on the supply list. It was very obvious to me that lots of people didn't provide the classroom with the supplies that were needed. There is no way a class of 26 kids went through 5200 note cards, 104 expo markers and 104 highlighters in almost 2 months. So now I am under a dilemia. Do I go and rebuy supplies so that my son has what he needs or do I hope that the parents who chose not to buy the supplies will now step up. I volunteer in at the school and as of last week all the wants were still there so now I am starting to rebuy supplies that I did provide in the beginning. Think about this. Where would your kids be without parents like me who do buy supplies and will restock the teacher?
