Waters Church in N Attleboro will be giving away free school suppiles to anyone who needs them on Saturday from 10-4 while supplies last

I can't believe some of the items on this list. I'd really like to know who came up with the list. How many dry erasers does a classroom need? Really 1 per child??? Why should a parent have to supply 2 dozen pencils? As a senior citizen I feel that the school should be suppling most of these items not the parents. Since we know that each child will not come in equipped with all of these supplies, are we exploiting the families who send in every item on this list to supply the entire classroom?
Andy Heller August 25, 2011 at 04:44 PM
Sandy- Agreed. Don't we pay taxes here? I seem to remember going to school bringing my lunch and a pencil. And I also seem to remember learning more of things that you really needed to know to survive in game of life, not the test-driven curriculum of today. We've got these kids taking AP classes but not knowing how to balance a checkbook.

With the budget the way that it is the extra money is just not there. As a parent I have no problem purchasing supplies for my son's classroom, supplies that will not only be used by my son but also other students and the teacher. I do not feel exploited, not every family is lucky enough to have to have jobs and struggle to clothe and feed their children, I would much rather purchase supplies for those children then have them not be able to eat dinner because their parents had to purchase bags and pencils.

Heather! Very well put and I couldn't agree more. I feel exactly the same.

I have no problem sending my child to school with supplies not only for his personal use, but for the use of others in the class as well. However, I would not run out and purchase the items on this particular list until after consulting with his teacher. I am not sure who came up with the list, but cannot imagine that every teacher in every class would want or require the same exact materials. I would much rather get items that are truly needed in his particular classroom.

It's also a good idea to stock up on these items now while they are on special and store them away for later in the year. Teachers often run out of these supplies mid-late in the year and the teachers we have have be hesitant to ask more of parents. Last year our elementary school was scrambling for things like reams of paper, paint, pencils and especially white board markers. They save a LOT of paper by using white boards for classroom work, especially when combined with the other technology we have like SMART boards and document scanners.

I don't want to be accused of denying little Johnny a squirt of hand sanitizer and a box of tissues, but when you start telling me that the school budget didn't included enough $ for reams of paper and pencils I'm going to tell you that someone's not doing a very good job with the budget. As a taxpayer I find this to be ridiculous.
Laura Dolan August 26, 2011 at 08:47 PM
What do you find so ridiculous? Not exactly sure what you find on the list that's so crazy.

Remember students who are unable to supply their own supplies need only to ask the teacher for whatever they need. The school has limited amounts of supplies which can be accessed and then it's left to the teacher to provide materials for these students. Except for kleenex, the articles listed are not to be shared with all. During the cold season, my class would use 3-4 boxes of kleenex a month and of course the kid with the worst cold or allegies wouldn't contribute to the class supply. The school has a limited supply so teachers are typically bringing in 2- 3 cases of kleenex. A student will use more than 24 pencils during the year. I would have about 300, bought at Staples on hand in Septemeber and by May I would have none. One way students use their dry erase markers is in math review. Solving problems on the erase board and holding up their answers is a quick way for the teacher to see who is having trouble. Again the school has a limited supply, teachers buy the markers for the kids who don't have them. I could list a huge number of germy places in school that children are touching everyday. The hand sanitizer is kept in students' lockers or desks to be used by individual student. Some generous parents send in large containers which are placed by the sink and the kleenex for all students. On average, teachers spend between $500- $800 per year on student materials. Please help support your teacher by supporting your child.
