    I am part of the 5th grade team at my school. In an effort to make the parents lives easier (and ours!!!) we decided to purchase all of the supplies the students will need for the year. We request that they send in the money (we set the same amount for every 5th grader) and when the money is submitted the students get their bag of supplies. Parents were thrilled with the idea! We did it for the first time last year and it was a WONDERFUL success! Everyone had the same color homework folder, the color of the notebooks matched the color of the folder. It was a great way to help teach them organization. Plus, noone felt out of place or was showing off their high school musical notebook. I am excited to do it again this summer and I will be at staples getting the first of their supplies this week end!!

    Also, I do set up a "giving tree" where parents can choose to donate other classroom supplies we may need like boxes of tissues, color copy paper, and dry erase markers.
