Purchasing items on this list should ensure that the most important supplies are secured by the beginning of school. There will be periodic inventories of supplies throughout the year. Having all supplies necessary every day is an important component of school success! It would be a good idea for you to share the cost of all of these supplies with your student. This will help them appreciate how much you are investing in their supplies and give them a reason to take care of them.
