Can you believe summer is almost over? Sam goes back to school in less than 2 weeks! I didn't even realize it was that close until her dad and I were talking on the phone last week about how we needed to get the shopping done before the stores sold out of uniforms. That's when I looked at the calendar and realized I needed to get to the mall a.s.a.p. Which is exactly what we did and we were lucky enough to find all uniforms and accessories still in stock. I got her clothes, shoes, socks, back pack and water bottle ready to go.
However that is not all that she needs. If you have school aged kids, you know there is still a lot pending to be purchased. We still need school supplies as well as the items that we bring in to donate for the classroom. Budget cuts have affected schools so much that teachers have to spend so much out of pocket, just to have necessary supplies for their students. The lack of supplies should not be a burden carried by the teachers alone, and we purchase extras to donate as well.
That list of items for the school can include:
Kleenex is always on the list and for me it's as important as the wet ones because they are what will help shield our kids from illness. Another reason why Kleenex is a must-have for back to school is that they really support the back to school season by partnering with Box Tops for Education. Not only is Kleenex such a trusted brand, with Sneeze Shield, which helps contain germs, they help our schools get some much needed funds.
