What is the strangest thing on your child's school supply list?

My son has to bring 2 pair of earbuds or over the ear headphones.

My son is going into kindergarten and so far, nothing strange on his list. I think it's a bit overkill that he needs 2 composition notebooks and 2 spiral notebooks but other than that it's pretty generic...folders with pockets, glue sticks, scissors, pencils, kleenex, etc. Weird to me that you have to buy headphones for your son

Not weird at all. Kids use computers and play educational games. Not everyone in the class needs to hear all that noise at the same time.

It's being your own or risk getting lice or other health concerns from sharing them with others. 2 pairs because kids are rough on them.

That's probably for computer time. It's better than sharing them due to head lice. There's nothing strange on gss' lists, but I was just talking to dd about only buying half of the supplies now and the rest 2d semester. She already spent $50 on 2 backpacks, plus shoes. If she gets everything now, it will be another $100ish for supplies. They have to buy extra stuff to cover those who don't have enough. There are programs for those who can't afford supplies. She can barely cover her own kids, let alone others. Ridiculous!

Typically they ask for a lot because kids burn through supplies, not for kids can't afford it.
