Congrats on your new job! I am a teacher at a K-8 charter school and am more
than willing to share supply ideas with you. Have they given you a budget to
work with? This will be the biggest factor in determining how you stock up
for the year. Feel free to email me off of the list and i can give you some
tips on dealing with the K-8 charter world. :)
