Though we home school, there is still the need to be ready when school starts. With the economy such as it is, schools can’t supply everything they once did. I don’t remember notes home when I was a kid, for my parents to commit to sending a box of crayons this week, let alone a box of kleenex the next.
I’ve heard from so many parents, wanting to know what it is that their child will need, or expected to have when they go back to school. Schools aren’t sending out the “need” lists like they used to, and the needs that were once a given, are now changing to adapt to the never-ending cutbacks.
With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of items that will help you and your child be prepared for the first day of school.
