    I too do the memory books for each of my students and I am afraid to know how much money I wrap up in those alone! But, you're right, they're just so much fun, I can't resist! We get $100 at the start of the year and another $100 of BEP money in Jan./Feb. Our students pay a $65 supply fee for books and copy costs. They also bring their own supplies. Luckily, we have many parents in our school who love to donate. I send home a copy of my Wish List with my handbook at the beginning of the year. I also have a copy on my website and I send updated copies home with my newsletter occasionally throughout the year. So far, I've never had any complaints about it being tacky. You'll always have those parents who would never even think of giving donations. On the flip side, you'll always have some that would love to help out. My theory is, it doesn't hurt to ask! I've had a DVD player donated, a rocking chair, bean bags, and much much more! It's worth it!
